Dyeing and Dyeing

I have spent most of yesterday and will probably spend most of today dying more fiber to spin. I am working on commission from Ann. She wants some bright skeins that will really “pop”. I am using turquoise, orange and hot pink, possibly plied with an ebony roving. I’ll post pictures of the results soon.

Live yarn.

I can’t go into yarn stores anymore. I hate all the same cookie cutter yarn out there. So I started spinning my own. I dig it. I started sharing my stash and pretty soon someone asked where the could get some. It went down like this:

She says: “Damn, this is great yarn.”

I say: “Yeah. Thanks , I made it last week.”

She says “So how much do you charge for say, a couple of skeins?”

I just laughed the whole thing off as blatant flattery. Pimp my yarns?  Put my art out there? Well, I guess there’s no time like the present. Student loans don’t pay themselves right?
