Sold something else, sold something else!  *bounce* 

Ahem.  Yes.  I am clearly a seasoned artist.  *cough* 

Big Damn Dye Day today.  I've done about 3 lbs of merino, and I've got 8 ounces of silk that I might pull out too.  I need to place an order for more exotics, but I've been holding off until next week because I saw that Little Barn is going to be at Maryland Sheep and Wool, and I can buy from them there without paying shipping.  I'm really hoping that I can find someone who is selling the larger containers of acid dye, because buying it by the half ounce isn't exactly economical when you're trying to use it every week. 

Back to work.  Pele is calling my name...
This morning is the great "peacock" experiment with my dyes.  I've got three pots in the kitchen cooling right now, and from there I'll pick the colour that goes best with my beloved Twisted Sisters Petite Voodoo. 

We have:

1 part turquoise, 2 parts teal
Equal parts turquoise and teal
2 parts turquoise, 1 part teal

And three tiny skeins of merino/silk blend yarn stewing in the pots.  If I ever find my camera, I might post pictures of the skeins and the original Iris yarn and take a poll.
