More dyed roving

I couldn't help it, the roving has been here for well over a week. Siobhan wants me to dye some purple, and I will but I love these warm autumn colors. I used Cushings medium brown, old gold, and orange for this. The pictures were taken with the new camera, on the second highest resolution. They look pretty good. The first one was taken using the zoom from the upstairs bathroom window.

I also got the treadle and footman connected on the spinning wheel. It goes quite nicely. If I can get maintenance info on the internet, I might give it a try. It has to be easier than using a drop spindle, I never could get the hang of that.
