In the meantime I decided not to spin the rest of it in the usual fashion. I pulled the painted roving apart at the color joins and came up with 4 piles of colorways, predominately yellow, blue, coral and purple. I'm going to spin and ply each pile separately to come up with a mostly solid color with bits of the adjoining colors - I've done this before and loved the results. Maybe these 4 mostly solids could be good accents to the above crazy yarn. Will probably work on this spinning in the evenings as I get back to weaving. I have a goal to spin a bit more this year, and not to always be tempted by my latest dyeing but to also spin up fiber from my stash that has been sitting for way too many years.

Some plying to show....
Finally I have something to share and I haven't been able to upload pictures to the blog. I would leave and come back to it and still no luck, the browse button wouldn't come up to browse for a picture. Finally I navigated my way to the google help forum, not as easy as it should be, posed my question and saw many others using Internet Explorer were having the same issue and that pictures could be uploaded through the HTML button rather than the Compose button until the issue is remedied. Just pointing this out in case anyone else is having the same problem.
