Dye day....Bailey approved......

I only dyed 6 pounds of merino roving today but it felt like twice that much, guess I was running on empty and moving slow. I always take a picture of my roving soaking wet hanging to dry - I guess sometime I should take a picture of it after it dries when it's all fluffed up and 3 times it's size, so much prettier. Not sure what I did with the lavendar in the center - was originally thinking silver grey with a bit of blue but got carried away and added some lavendar. Bailey was his usual helpful pooch self today.


  1. Ooooh....more pretty colors! Makes me wish I didn't have bins and bins of roving...I'd love to try some of your multi colored rovings. I should get to spinning so I can justify buying some. Such a pretty doggy. He looks like he's really sweet. :-)

  2. Good thing you don't have cats! They couldn't resist those long strands. I love the colors on the right end.

    1. I don't even think this house could be cat proofed - way too many tempting things for kitties to get in to. That one on the right makes me think of commercial wool felt fabric from the fabric store - all those dusty darker tones - can't wait to spin a sample of it.


I love your comments - thank you!
