Spinning for Intarsia

Here is my knitted intarsia sample. I spun singles from a hand painted roving and then Andean plied them. I also used a few pieces of commerical yarn for extra colors.

What a Grrrrooovy Lynne Vogel Workshop!

Just finished a fabulous 3 day spinning for intarsia and entrelac workshop taught by Lynne Vogel (of Twisted Sister Sock Book fame). It was a real creativity stretcher and I loved every minute (except when I tried to roll my active singles into a center pull ball and INSTANTLY discovered fiber spaghetti....not recommended). I'll post a few pictures in the next couple of days.
