Back so soon?!
Why yes, i am!
I finished spinning a sheep's worth of wool! YEA!
I did this for my OWL in the HPKCHC... I'm so glad i decided to do it too!
I decided I wanted to dye it with Wilton cake dye. I did a test dye of three different colors. Juniper, Leaf Green and Brown. I came to the conclusion that i would use Juniper with a dash of leaf green to liven it up a bit.
Last night i just couldn't wait and and so started my dying experience.... Now i have 16 skeins of this yarn (2,065 yards) and wanted to have it all the same. So what does one do... puts it all into one dye bath. Right?!!
I shoved it all in to a 22 qt pot and couldn't even stir it around at all. Bad idea. Well it was all in and i just went with it hoping that it would work out.
Today i decided that I would dye it again in smaller batches. So I did and it helped... but i think i might dye it again. I'm not sure.
I keep going from I love it to i hate it. Very strong feelings i know, but maybe i just need to get use to it. I guess I'll see how i feel about it in the morning.
There are a few skeins of yarn that have a really dark spot or two on them...(you can see it in the picture below)I do have a few extra yards(about 500) so hopefully i won't have to use them. Or maybe it will just add to the oh-so-cool hand dyed look... one can hope:)
Oh have i mentioned that I'm going to knit the Central Park Hoodie out of this yarn?! Well i am!
Here is some pics of Truban, cause i know you all want to see little baby cuteness:)
He was laying on me and i snapped a few pictures so i can remember how cute and tiny he is... I know they grow all to fast. I love the little scowl on his face...
