Sure Sign of Spring
It was so warm today I did the dyeing of the 3 120 yd skeins that I am going to ply together. I wasn't sure at first exactly what colors I wanted to use; I was leaning to doing each skein a different bright color, like maybe turquoise, red and orange but then I saw some pretty yarn done in turquoise, pink and tan so I decided to do something more along those lines. I used pink, blue a medium brown and left part of one skein undyed, although the brown crept just a bit too much. I also decided to do variegated skeins just because. And so instead of the original pot dyeing, I ended up steaming the skeins in the oven. But the resultant skeins hanging on the line are a sure sign of warmer weather! I have them all wound on bobbins now on my lazy kate waiting to be plied tomorrow sometime.
