Hand Dyed, and Hand Spun

First I bought some 64 count Merino Top Ecru/Undyed Roving, then I hand dyed the roving with Jacquard Acid Dye, in the colors Hot Fuchsia, and Turquoise. I got a Beautiful blue, green, pink, and purple roving. Then I hand spun the roving, and 2 plyed, the yarn, which made a very thin yarn. I wanted a thicker yarn, so I cabled the 2 plys that I had. This Beautiful yarn is the result of my work. I got 120 yards, of a very pretty blue, green, pink, and purple yarn!!
I am soooo very happy with my yarn. This link shows you how to cable yarn
