Color Mixing

I love experimenting with color in handspinning. After giving a spinning lesson this weekend to a new spinner, I felt inspired to play around with my wheel again. So I tackled a combo with some Hello Yarn Flotsam and Hello Yarn Ships, Whales, and Icebergs.



I think my favorite part of the whole process is always the plying. I was wearing a teal colored skirt while I spun the Flotsam (the pinky-purple-green one), and it seemed to really make the corals and pinks pop. So I thought that maybe I should ply it with some teals and greens. As you can see, it really paid off! One of the skeins will be mine to keep, and the other will go up in my mom's shop with a big 'shipment' this January.
