August 6, 2008

My part of a study group on color

Some of the members from my Spinning Guild decided to pursue a Master Spinning Certificate. The number of participants grew, and it changed to just completing the requirements but not pursuing the certificate. (Don't ask me why, I'm still confused on that point)

Anyhow, we purchased three pounds of roving apiece, and proceeded to start dying- leaving one pound plain. Each person taking on one of three primary colors (mine was red). Then the idea is to split the colors between the 7 members, so each of us can blend with cards to get our own color wheel. (seventh member dyes black for tones - to be blended later)

This is a picture from my dye day with my friend Laura, we decided to dye together - more fun that way. Have pics of the dividing day too, but only know how to add one at a time on 360. Will do a blog and add a few pics on blogger later.

    Colleen: Hi Tammy, I didn't know you belonged to a spinning guild that is awesome they can help you with your wheel. I saw an interesting article in Spin off about doing the color wheel thing you are doing. Also the book Color in Spinning I think has info about all that. I need a link to your Eblog
