In this last podcast on working with color in your spinning, I take the fiber I dyed in the six tertiary colors and discuss how to blend and spin them for a shawl. There are many options, and I must admit I have not made my final decision. But I certainly had a good time exploring the possible comibinations and found some lovely multicolored yarns along the way.
I did take some photos along the way, and will have those posted on my blog Yarnspinners. The photo here is just one of those, showing the fiber blended from two sets of three different colors.
The first part of this podcast is actually reviews of the two books I have used as references for this project. First is Color in Spinning, by Deb Menz. The second book is Dyeing to Knit, by Elaine Eskesen.
Music in the podcast is from the podsafe music network (Music Alley). The interlude music is by Gokul Salvadi and is titled Color Blindness. The closing song, (indulge me for my love of the blues) is by Doug Macleod and is called Sheep of Different Color.
