Hm. I know! I'll dye some of my light Romney that I got at Rhinebeck. Except that I don't have dark green dye. But I DO have blue and yellow and orange dye! So Monday night I dyed 4 ounces in a mixture of blue/yellow/orange. And got ... dark turquoise (on the left below), virtually the same color I already have. So Tuesday night I overdyed 3 ounces of that in a yellow pot and got an interesting green (on the right below). Lighter than I want, but oh well. The wound up wool is part of what I have after carding in all those other colors, before adding in any of the stuff I just dyed.
Then I took all the dyed and overdyed wool and mixed it in with the previous wool to get this "interesting" mixture ready for carding. I don't think it's going to be attractive. It needs more blue and dark green.
I bought a few ounces of dark green and blue from the felting peeps (you can see them below), carded them in (also below), and will start spinning it tonight. I need to get 450 - 600 yards for the hooded scarf. I'm beginning to think I would have been alot better off, colorwise, if I had just bought some yarn instead of trying to make it! I know I gotta try and fail a bunch of times and that's part of the learning process, but who's going to wear a hooded scarf that's the color of baby poop, or throwup?
Later note: Interesting things happened when I started spinning the above wool. The single looks like this - - really good! This is the first ounce of it. I've got 6 more chunks to go. Then plying two singles together into a double. This is my weekend project, right here. I'll let you know how it goes.
