The wool from Sunday

Here is the merino top I dyed on Sunday - it's very dark and not pretty. The burgundy came out brown and the dark green looks muddy.

I will probably spin it up eventually, but it's not going to be one I pick up anytime soon.

I need to get a better camera, I can't seem to take a picture that gets the colors right. Posted by Picasa

hi ...i think this is gorgeous personally...but if you don't love it consider blending it with some lighter color...

Thanks Rita, I think that I will spin it as a single and then ply it with something more colorful.

Barbara, it's not your camera. It's the time of day and the room you're in, etc.
Most natural light photos come out with a blue tint. If you use a photo editing and posting program like Picasa, you can make this adjustment really easily.
I do it on EVERY photo I take indoors of my fiber, have hope!

I quite like the colors -- somber and subtle. Do show us the yarn when you spin and plie it.
