Huzzah! A fiber Friday that I'm home for and can post!!!!
Love that blue yarn, Bella, it's gorgeous!
Nothing special going on, fiberwise, for me. I got a Kromski Fantasia as an early Christmas present (and as True Blood fan, I keep calling it a Kromski Fangtasia, totally on accident!), and two pounds of wool came with it. I've been spinning that and playing around with Kool Aid dyeing.
The wool was just marked 'domestic wool'. I'm new to this still, so someone help me out- that just means it was from an animal raised/shorn here in the US, right? What on earth else could the domestic mean? Does it wear pearls and make dinner, possibly fold some laundry? 'Cause that would be a big help.
Anyhoo, here is my yarn dyed with Lemon-Lime Kool Aid:
I wanted to try food coloring for dyeing, but I don't have the propane setup for the turkey fryer so I can boil stuff outside. Heated vinegar is stinky, plus we just got an influx of mosquitoes (late in the season, but it IS Texas). Those sneaky bastards find their way in when I open the windows, even though they all have screens. So much for in-house vinegar based dyeing.
