This shawl started out as a lovely roving from the Sweet Georgia Yarns fibre club. The colourway is called Waterfall. In the notes that accompanied the roving, Felicia suggested we try an Ombre approach. Separating all the colours, spinning them in the single colour sequence and then chain plying. So that's what I did.
This was the first thing I spun for the Spinzilla contest. And here are all the rolags nicely carded into the colourways and put into some kind of Ombre order.
After an hour of spinning, I was mostly finished with the blue.
After a couple of hours, the green was done too.
Here is the final yarn, chain plied to preserve the colour ways. You can see the silk shining through.
And here's the first attempt at a shawl. It's the Adhara Rainbow Shawl -- pattern was from Elann.com but I can't find it anymore. It's essentially a feather and fan pattern that grows.
So I tried another one.
Photos of that one tomorrow.
