You could try to use one thread of multicolour and one thread with one colour. Intresting!

Thank you. That sounds like a good idea.
So far I have rather mixed feelings about using a blending board. I think it has possibilities ... but then again, I have to admit that I really adore plain simple colors as they come off the sheep.
But perhaps I just need to rethink what I'm doing a bit. At any rate, it's too late for this skein. (I think I've figured out a project that I can use it in!)
In the mean time, I'll continue playing around with the possibilities, particularly now that I have a blending board ... I may as well use it !

I really like the way it turned out.
I think one would have to keep a record of what fibre layout was used if you needed more than that skein. You could take a photo with an iphone of the finished blending board, prior to making the rolags.

Thank you Gillianbeads.
It is a pretty little skein. And you know I DID take a photo of and fiber layout when it was on the board (just in case!). Like I said, I think there is a bit of a learning curve on getting the results you want with this thing. I do think that it is a great little tool.

I have enjoyed watching your progress. I read the article when it got here but wasn't sure I'd be interested. You've convinced me :-).
