What? I've spun yet another mini-batch of that old rambouillet?! Apparently so...

I was actually just using up what was left over, and had no idea what I was going to do with it. When I remembered this last night and took it off my spindle, I found that it was surprisingly even (for me) and also very much overspun. I don't know why I did that, now. But, eh... whatever.

Anyway, I thought I'd use the rest of my Kool-Aid and sort of do a half-hearted dye job. I didn't even try to do it the way one is "supposed" to. So the color is a bit washed out, but I don't think I could be more pleased, and I am sad that I don't have more of this lovely yarn!!

I use Kool-Aide because in all honesty I don't trust myself with anything a 2-year-old shouldn't be trusted with, so naturally, any kind of chemical dye is out, at least for the time being. That's also why I am continually spinning singles...just keeping it simple.

And in case you're wondering... this is blueberry and strawberry. Doesn't it look like a pearl? It does, even if my camera refuses to capture its subtleties. I promise.
