On Saturday August 11, Karen & Nancy W. graciously hosted Dye Day at their farm. They have a big cement area that is perfect (provided it doesn't rain - but there is always the barn if it does) for working with dyes and water, and such.
I wasn't able to attend, Karen took these great pictures.
What a rainbow of colors - you did good gals.
Some of the yarn that was dyed will be used for the warp for the sheep to shawl that we will be doing at the fair on Saturday 22nd. The yarn that will be spun that day will be the brown Shetland fleece donated by Nicki C. and Marietta Shetlands, that we weren't able to use at the Highland games because of the color of the warp. I'm looking forward to seeing how this one turns out.
They need spinners to demo in the barns at the Evergreen State Fair in Monroe the last week of the month. If you are interested and want to find out more, let me know.
