I do like the way the color came out. And I wish I’d spun some hand dyed to start with, the color variation made it soooo easy to see what was going on as I was spinning. And by some amazing accident the two cakes are only one yard difference and almost identical in weight which means I spun pretty evenly and they would be perfect for two matching articles. I wish I knew how to do that on purpose!
But . . . the color! I knew the color was all over the place as I was spinning but I thought it would even out once I plied the singles together. Somewhat. But after I balled the yarn it was obvious that one was thoroughly darker than the other and what you may not be able to see in the picture is that the darker one also hints distinctly toward brown while the lighter one has barely any brown in it. All the way to the core. I’m assuming that if I had asked the right people there would have been suggestions of tricks on how to deal with this before spinning but I didn’t. Too impatient. Sigh. The color differences would be fine for me but I’m a little concerned about how the intended recipient will take it . . . will they look like accidents or intentional siblings?
