Making a mess March 3, 2009

I did get inspired come Sunday night to dye some stuff, so I did. Here are two rolls of roving:

Wool sushi

Wool sushi

I plunked them in the steamer and not long afterward I noticed the lid was tilted up a little. I removed it to find this:


I think it’s pretty neat how the rolls started to uncoil themselves like snails and got all inflated. About twenty minutes after I took that photo I heard a big “POP” from inside the pot. Heh.

I also kettle dyed a couple handfuls of stuff. Here’s the whole mess today (Monday):

Wool stew

I’m not overly thrilled with that green/yellow skein of yarn – if I still don’t like it once it’s dry I’ll probably overdye it.
