spinning yarn(s)

My latest thing... completely mindless on a drop spindle, is spinning rather chunky yarn. So far I have 1 skein 2-ply hand spun yarn, and 1 (and some remaining violet) ball(s) of 1-ply merino, and 4 more balls of "roving" (even though this amounts to an odd number, I have a feeling that the yarns' yardages will balance out). This is apparently the only activity that my overloaded brain can handle after work. Unfortunately I must also decide which colours to ply together to make 2-ply wool for knitting with. I am now officially taking suggestions. (The colours are: green (spun), violet (spun & unspun), orange, very dark green, and fluorescent pink.)

where did you find all the coloured sheep?

you make the sheep drink water with food colouring in it, and then, just like a carnation, they magically turn colours!

Well obviously orange and violet, and I'm also going to suggest orange and fluorescent pink.
