Okay folks, we are watching Penny DYE, not DIE!
Us fellow hand dyers always have this joke about
watching someone dye--and if you don't know what
we are really talking about
You could get upset,
but this is
what we do................
We heat a big pot of water, add our fiber and then the dye
Penny was dyeing these huge spools of wool that had been spun around a core fiber.
These yarns will be used for rugs--luscious rugs to walk on!
The color has been taken in by the yarn and now to the rinse bucket
and Penny unwinds and unwinds
Does she like the color all the way through?
or does it go back into the dye pot wound the
And Penny is all smiles with your colorful yarn
Now, to lay it out to dry--so may D words!
We all agreed, we liked this variegated look on the fiber
Now, I'm anxious to see her finished rugs!
Once finished in the dye shop, we must head into the studio to see what's on her loom
Fabulous! I'm thinking this is for a swatch swap--shhhhh!
Liking this! Penny owns Skyloom Weavers. Visit her sometime--because you'll be in for a treat!
