Purple Fleece

I'm still working on the "Bubble and Squeak" knitting I started a few weeks back. It's growing slowly and I'm incorporating more yarns as they come along. I had a stray bit of English Leicester fleece all washed up with nowhere to go, so I threw it in the dyepot yesterday. I had a bit of "plum" colour left in the pot from whatever wool I dyed last. I added some "marine" blue. Out came this purple: As you can see, English Leicester is not a fine fleece, but it takes colour beautifully. I'll spin this up today and add it to the collection.
