Spinning - red Merino blend = Firestar

2 strands of firely soft Merino
1 strand 97 gram + 1 strand 99 gram - 260 meters together
meanwhile i made me a Blending board as you know, so making rolags should be much faster … one would think …
but that is not as easy as it sound ….
this time i blended 3 shades of reds together, also 3 shades of orange, and 3 shades of yellow.
i forgot to photograph from the beginning, so i got just the shades of red to show, and my camera hates red :/
so now I got 3 piles of red, and blend it together … the same i did with the others - earlier
after a few evenings of blendings, i had 3 big piles of bats and started to make rolags, the first was … uhm .. ugly
tested it spinning and knitting - that was ok …
so off i went … making a box full of fire , spun it up, and plyed it - again i am rather pleased with the outcome
