Good morning Lovelies! Aren't you always more motivated when the sun is shining?
After reading "Start Spinning" in one sitting on Friday, I received this gem in the post yesterday and may have read it all in one go again... It's just incredible! Lots of lovely photos, lots of step by step instructions, personal hints, tips and stories dotted in between.
So after getting to grips with my new spinning wheel, braiding all the fibre I could find and spinning my first yarn, I tried my hand at dyeing it!
There was lots of vinegar and blue & purple food colouring involved; I may have ended up looking like I had murdered all the smurfs at once in some sort of smurphy apocalypse, the kitchen narrowly escaping the same fate.
My partner was very confused as to why all our cleaning products were hanging from yarn over the sink (in case you are confused too, this is supposed to smooth out the wiggly bits of yarn).
So we got some daffodils to brighten up my dead window garden! And to show off my new yarn beside as a photo prop. yey.
Look at the lovely mess I made (and have since cleaned up). I kind of wish I could put my desk under this window, but I don't know how sensible it is to have your workspace in the kitchen :/
I'd snack all day and all my work would smell of dinner. Disaster. Oh, I've uploaded the yarny photos to my stash on ravelry too :).
What are your favourite dyeing methods? I shall have to try them!!
