Well I’m at it again, this time with a larger palette of dye shades. Last time I ended up with this inspiring basket of yummy colours…
and I am still using up all the little ends in the needle felting even after I’ve crocheted the ends of balls into tiny flowers. When you’ve dyed it yourself you don’t want to waste an inch!
I had a kilo of 4ply wool to wind into 25gm hanks which has taken quite a long time to get out of the way.
It’s so BORING! Trouble is, once you’re in the swing of it, you just want to keep mixing and dying and its too frustrating to have to stop to wind more wool so you’ve got to get everything ready beforehand.
I got the utility room all geared up to make a start last night,
and immediately got a volunteer to help…
Thank goodness Higgins can’t jump quite that high!
I’ve carried on mixing and microwaving and rinsing on and off ever since. It actually fits in really well with writing the blog as I have 15 minute time slots while the microwave is doing its stuff to sit here typing! (It does mean I’ve abandoned the rubber gloves and I’ve just noticed how grey my hands are getting!)
The light is fading now and I have a very fed up little dog wondering why we are not out walking, so I will leave you with a glimpe of the story so far!
