The Roving is Ready!

Yesterday, the boys roving hung and dried. While drying, I was amazed at the similarities in the three sets. The boys all used different colors, but yet they looked so much the same. Tye-dyed, a dead head's dream! Here is a pic of the roving drying:
This morning, they were completely dry and ready to look at more in depth. Below is Brady's; it spotty with gray and loads of other colors.
Next is Austin's. His has a lot of blue shades. I can't wait to spin his up with the blue and yellow and purples. The spinning on his will start today! Hopefully, I will have some pictures to post of it tomorrow.
Last, is Drew's. Wow! His is very bold and strong. This one will spin up gorgeous as well. He placed his colors with a bit more care than his brothers and it really pays off in the color scheme!
I had to lay all three out side by side so you can see the differences. The yarn will look similar but with the distinct differences of Brady's being more sporadic, Austin's being blue, and Drew's being boldly beautiful!

On a different note, the craft show I have been planning on being in has been canceled. Bummer! I was really looking forward to it. Hopefully, I can find one more major show to be in before Toad Suck Daze. Yes, to all my dear friends in California, I DID say Toad Suck.
Toad Suck Daze is a bit event here in Conway, Arkansas. There is a near by town...very small, called Toad Suck. Back in the day, boats used to pull up and dock at a Tavern in Toad Suck. This was before the county was dry (yes that mean they sell NO LIQUOR in the county). The town folk used to say that the sailors would suck on the liquor bottles until they swelled up like toads. So, the name Toad Suck came about...and darn those sailors, they are probably the reason the whole county is dry. Always takes a few to ruin it for the whole.
Toad Suck Daze is a huge (300,000 +) fair with crafts and rides and great fair food. So now you know! I will be sure to post links and more, once the event gets a bit closer!
Until tomorrow! ♥

Your boys take after you in the creative department! They each did an amazing job! I can't wait to see them spun. Did the boys figure names out for their roving yet?
