Weekend yarn dyeing

dsc_00831Kami came up to visit this weekend, we decided to dye yarn and roving.

dsc_00841We used easter egg dye for the most part.  Then we tried out some of  the jaquard dye I won at Fall Retreat.

dsc_00851We wrapped the yarn and roving in plastic wrap.

dsc_00822Then we steamed them.

dsc_0086Look how pretty!  Kami send me a picture of your roving so I can post it!  The sport weight yarn (left) is destined to become many things.  The Lace weight yarn (right) is destined to become a Pi shawl.
