This week has been full of dyeing because I have not one, but two shows in April. DFW Fiber Fest which is April 1-3 at the Irving Convention Center and Yellow Rose Fiber festival which is April 15&16 in in Sequin, TX. So I have a master list that I am tweaking and following for the most part. BUT, I had a slight accident this morning with my dye pot. I could blame it on poor lighting, or not enough coffee, but the blame really lies in the fact that I did not put away my brown dye last night, so when i reached for my black dye this morning, I ended up grabbing the brown. And because I have moved all dyeing operations to the garage, I couldn't really see that it was brown either in powder or liquid form. This can be solved by putting away my dye when I am done with each color way. Lesson Learned!
I haven't been very good about wearing any kind of mask when I dye, so my goals are to never dye without a mask again. I just get impatient and want to get on with it, so don't take the 10 seconds it takes to get my mask on.
And this is a close up of the knitting I am finishing this week. It is a Test Knit for Shannon Sanchez designs. I told her I wanted to show off my halfie skeins and she told me she was looking for test knitters for a new pattern. So its a win/win for the both of us.
And here's a peak at one of the lovelies out of the depot this week. Best Engineer In The 'Verse is debuting as a self striping at DFW Fiber Fest.
