Cranking Up the Dye Kitchen

I forgot that getting the dye kitchen back up and running takes a day or two. I got another batch of skeins wound, using the Dream Skeinwinder of course, washed, and am now mordanting*. I like to let the yarn soak in the mordant bath overnight so I won't be getting to the actual dyeing until tomorrow. Once I get it up and running it is easy to keep it going so that I usually can dye every day. I have just three dyepots left of the Single Color category which I should get done this week, then on to the Color Mixes. This week I have had a guild board meeting and then there is the Whidbey Weavers Guild picnic on Thursday. This in between all the other things we are trying to catch up on after being gone for a few days. Thank goodness the summer days are long. Back to the dyepots! -Renee
