I'm really happy with how the dyeing turned out. There are only a couple of undyed spots, but I think it adds some interest into the finished product. The colour variations are awesome! I was a little concerned about felting during the dyeing process, but it came out well, with only a little tiny bit of felting on some of the ends.
It took a bit of time to spin it up because I haven't had as much spinning time as I would like; I've been working long hours at my day job lately.
Each spindle of single yarn is so different from the others, I love watching the colours blend together, and it looks different than I expect every time.
And here is the plied result! 3 singles of the thinnest diameter I could manage with my limited spinning experience, plied together by spinning them together in the opposite direction so that some of the overtwist was removed, and because that's the way the plys like to be spun together so that they grab onto each other.
I've washed the yarn to set the twist and it's drying now... Can't wait until I can knit a test swatch with it. If I love the result I'll leave it as is, if it doesn't look cohesive enough, then I can use the leftover teal blue/green dye bath to make the tones a bit more blended.
The end result is with 774 yards of 3-ply, and 148 yards of single-ply. (There always seems to be one spindle that has way more yarn on it than the other 2.)
Now onto Ravelry to find something to make with my hand-dyed, hand-spun yarn!
I've been spinning as much as I can in the last couple of days and the top of my left hand is very hot and achy. I need to knit for a bit to relax those overworked spinning muscles!
