I had a productive dyeing day today, I dyed up some more self striping. Shop will be updated mid-July. I love dyeing self striping, but it is so time consuming. I started at 9:30 thinking I would be done by noon ... try 2:30.
All the skeins have to be wound off a cone, then made into a 36' (yeah FOOT) skein, soaked, dyed, washed, rinsed and hung. Then when dry, reskeined into a normal sized skein, because I am assuming nobody wants to try and knit from a 36' skein, LOL!
I've also been practicing on my support spindle with some sample fibers I've been carding into rolags. I found an excellent book on support spindling (there aren't many out there).
Its going OK. I do have a few more supported spindles coming my way to try out different ones (as usual I went coo-coo bananas when I learn a new thing - how did I end up with over a dozen drop spindles?!?! I stopped counting at 12). This one is great for a beginner, but the tip is quite bulky and fingers tire easily flicking it.
