Thursdays are for Dyeing

The steam pot is flowering.
Today both of my private lesson students were super ill so they cancelled on me. I jumped on the rare moment of freedom to dye some yarn. This is the first time I've been able to dye since November I think. I did two new colorways. I think they might be a little too close in color for my preference but you never know what people will like.

I must say that I have missed dyeing. The odd thing I missed the most was the smell. There is a distinct aroma that wet, dyed wool has and it was good to have the fragrance wafting through the apartment again.

I can't wait to see how the yarns turn out and I will be sure to post pics here when they dry.
