This is a sneak peek of what is going onto the loom next. I've absolutely fallen head over heels in love with dyeing yarn. The results are not always quite what you imagined they would be, but so far in my experience, they're always delightful.
So much of weaving is a meticulous craft. There's lots of math involved. Attention to detail. Consistency.
But dyeing? It is like painting. I get to place the colors as I will, in real time, as inspiration strikes.
It is still slow art, plant fibers have to batch for 24 hours and you don't really see the colors they will end up as until they've been rinsed and dried. This particular set of skeins had me a little terrified, being already colors outside my comfort zone and then also appearing much brighter and darker before rinsing and when wet. But they're growing on me! I can't wait to see how they'll weave up!
