Last Week in Review

My new lock by lock washing system left this wool stinky. So the combing process was not enjoyable. I had 5 oz. of these Shetland balls. I weighed out 2.5 oz and spun a single (see bobbin) and plan to spin the other half to make a 2-ply.
I did a little improv dyeing. I just used what ever acid dyes I had on hand. The blue is OK.

...but what do you call this mess? My aluminum pot had residue and the "avocado" had purple in it. And after I carded this wool, it seemed to be a mossy-sea foam. Sigh... well, it was just an experiment. No biggy.
