More fun with weak acid dyes

I've been dyeing some more. This time I dyed around three ounces of wool roving. I've pictured it here as it's drying on a screen in the spare room along with some fleece that I washed yesterday.

The fleece will go through the whole process once it's dry - combed with the wool combs, pulled off through a diz, and dyed. I can hardly wait for the dyed roving to dry so that I can spin it.

I also dyed about 350 yards of yarn that I spun before dyeing. All of this is from the raw fleece that I got for Christmas. I'm looking over knitting patterns and trying to decide what I'll make.

What I really want is a loom so that I can weave.

Ooh, a loom. That sounds like fun. I love the colors you've chosen!

Hi adrienne!

Someday, maybe I'll have a loom : ) And the colors are spinning up so beautifully.
