There were quite a lot of repeats of the colour sequence. Before, when faced with this I had just split the top into two or three equal lengths and barber-poled it. I had even done a fractal spin which was interesting, but each time I had left the colour sequence as it was originally intended . This time I wanted to do something different, So, with heart in mouth I split the top into the three dominant colours as well as I was able and then split each pile into three equal piles by weight.
However to be even more adventurous I am spinning the singles much tighter than I usually do to represent the uptightness of my life before I found out about friendship!!
To take this even further out of my comfort zone I plan to add little keys on silk thread and little stones too! As the orifice of my wheel is quite small I will add these as I do the final plying, probably to the red and brown bits, leaving the turquoise unadulterated.
