And the beat goes on...

I dyed some of that lovely fleece, using natural stuff...that would be cochineal, turmeric, walnuts and goldenrod.
I dyed some of my hand spun yarn too...
Here you can see the fleece drying...
And the yarn drying, left to right...goldenrod, tint of turmeric and cochineal (3 skeins), tint of walnut, cochineal, turmeric with a hint of cochineal. I just LOVE color.

And there is more to come...I hope some of you are weavers, because I will share the entire project once I am done. Until then, knit on (or weave on.)


  1. Beautiful colours!

    And belated wooohoooo - on the gorgeous summer sampler stole. A beautiful pattern!

  2. Wow - you are keeping busy....I'm looking forward to seeing what you're up to :-)

  3. Oh, I've gotten some turmeric for dyeing and still haven't gotten around to it. Thanks for the inspiration!
