41  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / My very own dye shop?! on: September 24, 2007 03:17:31 PM
I've just been given permission to turn my in-laws laundry room into my very own yarn dye shop (and I'm probably going to throw a spinning wheel in there somewhere, too!)

Does anyone have any tips on what to put in there, and what to avoid? In addition to the washer and dryer, it has a big white plastic sink basin, which I'm thinking of switching out for a metal one. Necessary?

Also, because this is probably going to be dying on a grand scale, do you think I should panel the wall behind the sink with something? If I tiled it, I'd be worried about the grout changing colors on me :/

I get the whole room to do with what I will, what do you think would be practical to throw in there?

awww really really newlyweds!!

my 3 year is coming up in Oct...

but i was married just before i turned 19 (october 16th 04, turned 19 dece. 16th that yr)

how long have you guys been together? is he just fab?

i love hearing people gush about their lives...and being a newlywed, i imagine you will want to gush (i wasnt really gushy, but we got married under weird circumstances, i gush now though! lol)

YES! He's probably the most amazing person I've ever known. His name is Alex and he's nerdy and smart and ridiculously good-looking. Everyone thought we were crazy for being engaged so young (I had just turned nineteen and he was almost twenty-one) but as soon as they saw us at the wedding it all changed.

When we first met, we were literally inseparable, and got matching anchor tattoos after three weeks. I've always been the reckless type and I guess I brought that out in him. His parents moved to Alberta (we're from Victoria, BC) and he didn't have a place to stay, so after knowing him for only a month, he moved in with me, and we've never been apart. He proposed this last February and we were married August 23 this year.

How did you deal with getting married young? Was it easy enough? People still give me weird looks when I tell them I'm married (because I could probably pass for 14 if I wanted to).

PM me and I'll add you!

I just moved to a small town, and apparently where I've moved to is notorious for how slowly people receive things - be it in the mail or from a shop..

My mother-in-law ordered some counter tops a good month ago, and was told they'd be here in two weeks. WELL. She decided to take matters into he own hands, buy a piece of plywood and some tiles and go to it!

This is what she came up with, complete with peachy orange walls. I was so proud of her, neither of us have ever attempted anything like it. I love it, and went on to contribute my little artifacts to it! I thought the cork board over the sink really sets it off.

I still think it needs something.. Any ideas?

I love that you've finished it. I'm proud of you. I hardly ever finish anything Sad

Maybe I'll buy a camera soon and that'll motivate me to post things.

I love them. Just LOVE them. Expect a visit to your blog from me if you have the pattern up for sure! <3

I can't believe it was rejected!

I know that it's common knowledge that non-animal fibres don't dye well, but I just successfully dyed a skein with only 20% animal fibre, the rest being polyacrylic, with KOOL-AID.

It can be done. I'll post pictures later, possibly.

Holy crap! TWO WEEKS?

I never thought I would have the stamina to knit a sweater, EVER, but if it only took you two weeks... whoa.

Any tips on speed or marathon knitting?

That's so beautiful! How would you rate it on a difficulty scale, for someone who hasn't really delved into lace before, but is a quick learner? I'd love love LOVE to make something like that!
