Dyeing, Drying, Cleaning Up

The wool locks are beginning to dry. The prepared top is dry and I picked the first one to start spinning today. I've cleaned up most of my dyeing equipment and put it away. Now I'll have lots of fiber to work with over the next few months. I plan on hand carding some of the locks, experimenting with blending. Some of the dye pots were filled with different fibers with the intention that they would be blended together later. Each type of fiber took on the dye in a unique way, so there should be rich dimension to the color in the end. I am excited to have so many kinds of projects to work on!
