Over-Dyeing








Over-dyeing the Cotswold worked well. I added more madder root to the dye bath and it really darkened up the skeins. I used low heat for about 2 hours then kept the yarn in over night. By morning I had the color I wanted in the first place: a nice autumn orange. Technically it's not autumn yet but now I can start knitting my next project as the weather cools down.

that's pretty. what are you knitting with it?

Ok, i'm getting ready for the Oregon Flock & FIber fest. Tell me what to buy if I just wanted to try the most basic form of spinning. I bet i'll be able to find someone there to give me an intro. What kind of spindle? What kind of fiber?
