New Years Day

I'm continuing to use my time to spin flax on the first day of the new year. It seems I'm somewhat out of practice spinning from flax sliver. 
The hemp I've been spinning lately has such a short staple length, 1", that I card rolags where as the flax is 3" at the longest and I'm spinning from the sliver.
I spun some practice skeins of only a few grams last night and today just for the fun of it I dyed them. One a darkened fuchsia, another an orangey colour and one a mixed green. 

The dye is finished and will just sit in the dye bath for a couple of days before I rinse them.

I think I better get the little roast chicken in the oven or we won't have a dinner today.
