Dye Day

On Monday, I dyed a whole mess of fiber. Roving and sliver for the shop and a rainbow of wool for me.

I couple of months ago I purchased Kay Petal's Felt Alive online class to learn to make felt dolls. I have yet to get started, because I needed to dye wool. I'm all set to go now.

The orange with blue/teal spots was supposed to be just orange, but some blue was hiding on my plastic wrap. Rather than being ewww and turning brown, it's very lovely. Same with the yellow next to it...still pretty, but I need it to be just yellow, so I pulled the blue spots out.

I also dyed some of that rainbow for more of these: Go, go Gadget Head! It's a retractable tape measure.

Soon to be a rainbow of bugs in my Etsy shop!
