A Peek of Sun

allowed me to take some pictures of my recent dyeing. The roving was so thick that I was afraid the dye wouldn't penetrate. I opened it as I applied the dye and it looks like it got through. The rather rumpled things are silk caps which I'm going to cut into 2" pieces and blend with wool on my carder. The roving pictured on the left is not quite as garish as it looks (the gold seems to have taken over the monitor), but is full of glorious fall colors.

Speaking of fall, I stored away a few things! I remember when shelves full of canned tomatoes and peaches made me content. Now it's the knowledge that I have a full cabinet of dye stock.

  1. Why, I think you have more dye stock than I do! Nice work.
