OK, so here's what I did last night. If you click on the photo, it should take you to the album with closeups of both batches...I hope. *g*
I'm rather pleased with how the colors turned out. Soon as they dry, I'll run them thru the drumcarder and start spinning.
The possessed iPod says:: Howl-O: Twa Corbies
lol! when i was scrolling quickly through my bloglines, i saw your beautifully dyed yarn & thought it was cabbage, washed & laid out on the table. all i could think was, "how did she get the green cabbage so green?"!!
LOL! It did turn out *green*, didn't it?
I can't wait for it to dry so I can card it up. All that yummy wool....
OHHHHH ME WANT! ME WANT! jumps up and down in a tantrum before realizing she's not 4 anymore...
uhm, V that is VERY lovely colors!! I STILL WANT 'EM!!
Come over to the dark side, m'dear.....
Y'know, if you'd take up a fiberart...like knitting, or crochet, or, dare I say it...Spinning, you, too, could have fun with dyepots and cool colors.
I mean, Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool isn't that expensive (I think it was $8 per POUND the last time I looked) - it's a decent yarn, it's WHITE, and it sucks up dye beautifully.....and I gots all sorts of contacts for raw wool.......and a bunch of dye powder sitting in my cabinet.....*eg*
evil, evil EVIL WOMAN!!
I've already got needles. Teach me you must. Weaving I've already tasted and the loom is... erm, well, no space for it as of yet, but one WILL be in my future.
