Lil' Helper

Yesterday I decided to spin some more of the Ashland Bay Panda blend that I bought from Mim a year or so ago. I really like it spun in a heavy single.
 I couldn't have done it however, without my spinner-in-waiting! ...Look at her foot.
She helped me treadle for about five minutes! Her attention span doesn't usually 'span' that long. While we were spinning, we were watching her channel, 'Babies First TV', that helped, I'm sure. She was really great about keeping her hands off the wheel, and I was beside myself with delight! I can't wait till she's old enough to take it farther!

Today, I filled up my dye roaster. I saw someone's blog post (sorry, I don't remember where I saw it) about a dye technique where you wrap plastic wrap around parts of a skein to keep it from dying. Most of you have tried this I'm sure, but this is a first for me, and I really enjoyed it. I'm not sure yet I like the results? But I think I do.
The colors are much brighter in person. I wanted more white left in it, and tried actually to make it red, yellow, and orange. Its mostly orange. Pretty though.
