I did some kettle dyeing last night using this method, but instead of painting, I just dumped it into a big pot. I used about 1.5 lbs of Corriedale and some Jacquard dyes. My method is totally unscientific (very unlike me), instead I went by the glug method.
The purpose of having a traveling wheel is …well…to travel with it.
I like to take my wheel to guild meetings and S’n’B’s, and up to this date I’d been wrapping her in garbage bags. Which was quite a hit to both of our dignities.
My friend Terry came to the rescue. A budding spinner herself, Terry is a gifted seamstress and knitter and crocheter.
What’s a poor stashaholic to do when her friend keeps posting pictures of a lush and verdant Houston. Especially when said stashaholic is stuck in 15 (count them 15) days in a row of -30C weather.
Oh Oh, yet again my somewhat dubious math skills come into play.I did not realize just how much roving 3 lbs would actually be! I am set now for the entire winter. Or until something bright and shiny passes my way and I get distracted Coffee tin for scale (I am Canadian and Tim’s is a food group).
I’ve had a very stressful couple of weeks since we got back from Nova Scotia – both personally and professionally. I won’t go into details because I want to respect the privacy of those involved, but it’s been very difficult. To the point where I can’t sleep, am grinding my teeth all the time, and snapping at those around me.
