Fiery

I'm spinning another marle yarn. This time it's a combinations of reds and orange. For the first bobbin I split the rovings down quite finely and held the different colours together in my hand as I drafted. The second bobbin will be similar, but I'll leave the rovings a little thicker and allow the colours to vary a bit more. When I ply them together there will be combinations of the different colours at different intervals. I want it to be a warm and vibrant colour story as it's still cool enough to have the heater on for most of the morning here in Melbourne.

Thanks--I've just this minute finished plying it and it's about to have it's little soak:)
