I finally got a chance to dye some wool!

Well, I didn't have time to play with this over the weekend, but yesterday I did get some of the Targhee dyed. This is half of it and it looks slightly lighter in the photo than it does in real life. I'm thinking about leaving the other half white and then having it blended in the roving. (Its essentially the same as having two fibers blended together, except this is two colors of the same fiber - the machines don't care.) I think I would prefer a lighter color of the blue green. This is the first time I've dyed loose fiber and the first time I've done immersion dyeing with the Landscapes Dyes. I feel like I got the color pretty even and there is no felting or clumping.

I also got the Flower Basket Shawl blocked so later today I'll be unpinning it! Pictures tomorrow with all the details!

Your blog is my #1 blog to check every day. It's always fascinating. I just want to know how you manage to produce the volume you do! You're able to whip up projects in record time which is amazing considering you have a little one to take care of! How do you do that?!?
