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.

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*

::looks around::

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.
