T-shirts and yarn and fiber too!

Peggy and I spent all day Saturday wearing gloves and sloppy wet shoes and having a blast with color.  Yes, it was a great dye day.  We started off tying t-shirts and linen place mats and ladies hankies into odd shapes with rubber bands and string, then squirted them all over with lots of color and tossed them in a plastic garbage bag to sit overnight.  Letting them sit overnight was the hard part.  Tie dying is such fun.  Don't over think it - just squirt and enjoy.  And we got great colors!

We also dyed 24 skeins of Splendor.  It's one of my favorite yarns.  65% superwash wool and 35% bamboo.  It takes the color beautifully and makes wonderful socks.  We were careful to dye 6 to 8 skeins in each colorway so there will ample yardage for projects larger than socks.  And we tried a new dye technique.  Well, it's new to us - dip dying.

We dyed several pounds of Merino spinning fiber, along with Merino/Silk, Mohair and Flax.  Sorry, no pictures of the fiber.  I'll take some soon and get them posted.

We had a great time and got lots of stuff dyed.  With shows coming up, we need to keep working!
