I love this stuff!

Original colors

For some reason, I’ve ended up with a pile of green yarns that I don’t like very much, so I decided to overdye them with turquoise. The image above left is the original colors and below that is the dye result. As you can see, there’s not a huge difference in the final colors, but the olive one on the right turned out to have a lot of depth to it. I have more of these same colors, which I will overdye with blue. Over dyed with turquoise

I’ve also been dyeing yarns for the next project, that is if there is ever a new project. I’m thinking the small piece on the loom may never end. There’s just something about having 50 butterflies going that seems to slow things down. Because of various life circumstances, my weaving time has slipped, so I’m working really hard to get back that discipline. My goal for the week is 18 hours of loom time. At the rate the current piece is going, it may take 2-3 weeks to finish. It’s size is only increasing by 1/2 inch per day.

I love seeing the yarns coming out of the depots! Wonderful colors. More pics later.
