We like our leftovers and oddments. We enjoy finding ways to use them and combine them. Our “bits” often provide us with a creative challenge and they always involve us with colour. Alexis was using up all the merino tops bits she had left over from spinning and dyeing. She had carded them into richly coloured , interesting wool batts. The phone image doesn’t do the colours justice. The next part of the creative adventure is spinning the colours and then seeing how different it all looks. The finished wool will then look different again depending upon what other colours you combine it with and whether you crochet, knit, felt or weave it. The oddments always provide a challenge which makes you think and use all your skills.
