after effects of dyeing roving :)
the super squishy merino from here (i did keep some white and i do have some to dye brighter)
a skein of wool (probably green mountain spinnery) from flo and some local farm wool
the rest of the beloved recycled shetland sweater
and a new sweater i’ve been frogging
just a few notes in case you’re interested. exhausting a dye bath is making sure that all of the dye is used up before i put it down the drain. you never know what will effect the earth and water supply and i’d much rather use it as dye anyhow. this also fills a gap in the stash. i generally don’t like the selection of pastels at yarn stores, and i’m unlikely to buy a single pastel skein unless i really think i need it right then. but, they are necessary to my color palette and i never get as good of pastels trying to dye them as i do when exhausting dye baths. it all works out quite nicely :) i especially love the yellows this time – very springy – and likely to be made into mitts shortly.
