I'm dyin' over here....

Guess what happened this weekend with this:

dying to be dyed.jpg

Well you take it to "DYE DAY". What is "DYE DAY?" Well it is when girls from my spinning guild get together and dye fiber! Carla came with her dye stuff and boy did I pick the right color!

Betcha can't wait to see huh?


That is PUMPKIN! And that isn't even a good picture. It has reds, oranges, yellows all mixed up. When we took it out of the dye bath and unzipped the lingerie bag, everyone gasped!

I also threw in a little roving into the Watermelon dye pot. Let's see them both together:


Oh my! The watermelon turned out "nice" but I really really love the pumpkin. I did a little spinning last night and here it is on a bobbin:


Now all I need to do is ply. Can't wait to see it all skeined up.

Carla I need more of that PUMPKIN! We must discuss.....

Wow, I clicked to say:

Holy crap, that color is gorgeous!

But it looks like I've been beaten to the punch. Still true though. I love it.

Oh so pretty! My oranges always come out looking neon, but this is great!

Wow!!! That is gorgeous! I almost bought some pumpkin dye a couple of years ago but chickened out and went with the blue. Such a judgement error...

My pictures from Sunday didn't come out very well either, but I can still send them to you if you'd like!
I already have a thing for the color orange as most people know, but the pumpkin orange is truly stunning.. its probably my favorite color in my dye arsenal!
See you on Sunday!

OMG, that pumpkin is beautiful! I would be tempted for a navajo ply to keep a nice gradual colour change :)
