Braided

As promised, mom took pics of my dry BFL fibre, all braided up and pretty!
 I got nice, rich colour this time.
 There were still a few white spots, but Mom says that blends in nicely in the spinning.
We're still undecided as to whether we are going to start dyeing fiber for the shop. We have yet to search out a regular supplier - Mom's just been buying bare fibre here and there.
I can't wait to see these spin up... but Mom says she's got a lot on her plate right now....

But.... she does have an extra wheel....

Can't wait to see how they spin up... I find that hard to visualize. I guess you'd better get some practice on the second wheel!

She's right about the white spots blending. Some of our local dyers discount fibre when that happens and if it's a colour I like I'll happily buy it because I know it won't matter in the end. I like what you're doing on those, especially the last one, and that's despite it not being my usual choice colourwise.
