Dyeing In Progress

today is the day
wool finally made it into the pots
three pots done

two more on the stove
I'll show all the wool when I put the pots away
later this week

the stack on the dye table is growing
I'm nearly done with one closet
a few stacks of too thin and too loose wool
still in the sewing room
wondering where to donate 

some cleaning done in between
I'm a a major procrastinator
so any time I actually feel like cleaning
I do 
the cats are very busy following me around

came across a bunch of red dot 
from when I was planning on selling patterns on linen
(only 4 or 5 years ago)
since then 
I've come to realize I hate drawing patterns on linen for others
for myself I can have errors galore

hope you're having a great week too!

Almost makes me want to pull out my rug and wool. Almost. I am happy that you are being productive...and you always produce the prettiest woolens. Have fun at it, Kelley Girl! xo

I'm looking forward to seeing how your wool turns out. Hope you will take comparison photos, particularly with those dark textures.

That's a lot of pots. Is the wool dried outdoors?

I think I need to do some dying too, lots of scrap wool and new wool sitting in bins, so a good time to get to it and store it on the shelves. I do like to keep lights, just in case I need a special color, so I will save that.

This must be the "Heinz" dyeing process... because the "anticipation" is killing me!!! lol! :-)

Hi Kelley,
Wish I could come and watch you! I have never dyed wool in volume like that and would love to learn!! I know the kitties are sure learning a lot!!!
Have fun!
