Reskeined yarn. The little dark one started out gray. The light blue is also shown pre- steaming. The roving is 2 oz of suffolk I forgot to take a pre- picture of. It got very fuzzy but didn't felt. Suffolk is reputed to have some superwash characteristics. This one was drip painted and went from dark to llight. However, as it sat all night, the dye spread and it became mostly blue. The teacher said you can leave the saran packs several days before steaming but obviously not if you want it to look as crisp as what you painted.

It has all of a sudden gotten very hot. The S&W tomorrow may be miserable. Hard to buy wool when it's 90.
