Colours For Spring

Finally we are having some decent weather here and the sunshine has inspired me to get out the old dye pots. I purchased some jaquard dyes last summer at the Michigan Fibre Fest and I finally got to try them out. I never really know what I will get, but I did some painted rovings and then some immersion dying with the leftover dye stock. I like to place the roving in a mesh bag and then dye it, which gives a mottled effect to the rovings since it is mashed up in the bag. So until we have flowers, I can enjoy my own colours of spring. I hope to bring them to Port Hope, April 18th for the Gathering and to Knitter's Frolic the following weekend in Toronto.
