This roving - and the yarn is one of those. Although I didn't take a 'before' photograph, you can trust me that roving was pale and washed out, with an obnoxious split. [A dye split is when the different colors of dyes that are blended, separate into their component parts. For example, instead of purple you get purple and red and blue.] Face it - it was ugly.
The sad part - I can never dye this again! That is a tiny problem with one-offs. You just can't do another just like that one!
Another snowy day in Asheville. It's pretty but quite cold - the low 20's F. And as a fearful snow driver, I have great trepidation getting behind the wheel on snowy days. Sounds like day to work from home!
