Well I do have pink hands... should have worn gloves. LOL I dyed up some fiber yesterday. I'm not much on the whole dyeing thing. I don't think I could ever make beautiful hand painted yarn or rovings, don't have the patience. But plunking big hunks of fiber in a pot & making it all the same color isn't so bad. And now that it's dry I can mix it all up on the drum carder. Hey, that's why I got the drum carder! :)
I got a starter dye kit of Greener Shades dye from Blue Mountain Handcrafts. So yesterday I broke out the dyes & some fiber that I got from The Sheep Shed Studio. Here is the resulting colored fiber. Some of them are quite eye popping, you might need your sunglasses on for this photo.... he he
The little bits up front are small amounts of sparkly icicle top. They took the dye really well too.
Minus the purple, I did that just cause I had to dye some purple fiber, LOL... these are gonna be my Juicy Melon batts that I've been thinking about. Stay tuned to see how they come out.
My busy season is starting at work... so if you don't hear from me as much don't worry, just means that I'm exhausted. :) Hope everyone has a good week!
