First handspun

I finished my first handspun. This pic shows it partially spun, with the original color of the batting.

I was not hugely fond of the colorway...

...So I decided to overdye it with Kool Aid and Wilton's coloring. Here it is presoaking so the dye would absorb evenly.

I used Kool Aid Pink Lemonaid and Berry Blue,and Wilton's Violet.

The pink was not as bright as I wanted, so I added just a bit of Kool Aid Strawberry, but this turned it red.

I dyed it single-ply, and plyed it after dying.

I am calling it "Fiesta."

Thank you! It was fun to do and I am really proud of it, even though it is far from perfect. I just think it is awesome that I MADE YARN!!!! How cool is that? ^_^
