Happy Easter! As usual, I spent a little time with the dyepot this weekend. I first colored a few eggs, and then filled my jars with wool. I used 4 tablets of color for each jar, water, vinegar and about an ounce of wool in each. I boiled it all for about 45 minutes and then just let them sit to cool. I got some super bright colors to ply with. Then, of course, I had to use the fluff to do a little Easter decorating.

I've been spinning, spinning, spinning, but not your regular old skeins of yarn. I have a pile of glitzy, textured, colorful strands of soon to be necklaces. I made several different wild rolags with my new blending board and found that they spin into some interesting yarns. I decided to ply the yarn back onto itself and really liked the look. I hope they will make really cool necklaces. I still need to finish the ends and add some wire clasps and closures. Making these is very addictive-so I hope to have plenty and maybe sell some when I'm done.
