I am still practicing spinning and I have dyed up about 100g of merino roving in blues and greens which I hope to spin into some sport weight yarn. I plan to use this to practice Navajo plying so that he long stripes of colour will ply back onto themselves and I will get long stretches of each colour. The result should be a yarn that will knit into stripes. I think I will end up with about 150 metres of it or more. The last lot that I dyed thsi way weighed a little under 75g and I got about 75m of it. I plan to spin this lot thinner, but we all knot how plans not always pan out, right? .
What can I make? I was thinking of making a scarf, but I'd liek it in a fancy stitch that wills how off the colours. Any suggestions?
