Fall Colors....

The trees are just beginning to change into their Fall Finest in the Bluff Country. The cooler temps and cessation of growth of outdoor vegetation brings me indoors to start spinning up my own fall colors...

This is some roving that I bought at the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival. Yes, I know ~ like I really NEED to be buying roving (or can AFFORD it)!

But it's MY colors! I so love the autumn colors.

I'm playing around with how to spin it. I'm just going to put a little bit on each bobbin and then see how I like it plied. I may add a little bit more red because I like a lot of red in my autumn mix...
