My Dyeing Day

 So, I spent a few days dyeing fiber in-between other chores. I don't think I ever bothered to post the pics for you lot, so today is a bit of a catch-up post of these pictures. The first two I did  were a purple and a pink. The dyes I have don't include these colors, so no idea why I chose to mix dyes in my first solo dying. Here they are drying on the right and the closeups below.

And here are the rest of the colors I dyed over that week. Just missing a true red - which is silly because there are two reds in my dye sets. Out of all of these, only the blue and yellow were colors in the sets. The purple, green, both oranges, and the pink were color combos I was playing with.

Overall, I'm incredibly happy with how these turned out. They are beautiful and make me happy. Still trying to decide what to do with them - do i spin them one after another and make a blanket? Do I card some of them together and make some awesome rollags? There is a universe of opportunities!
