Hand spun and dyed

I spun up some wool on my drop spindle a few weeks ago and promptly set out to dye it.

I was aiming for a deep yellow and I ended up with road cone orange, but I didn’t really have a project in mind for this approximate 20 yards of hand spun yarn, so it’s not much of a loss. A fun experiment in spinning, plying, and dyeing though; I’ve got some beautiful deep blue and turquoise wool/silk/who-knows-what fiber on the spindle now that was gifted to me. I’m quite excited to see it plyed, but I don’t dare stop spinning until it’s all spun up!
