Yesterday, we had a little dyeing party - it was so much fun! We had food, wine, lots of talk and laughter, and loads of dye and fiber! Shown above is some of Jill's "wool bell".

Here are multicolored mohair locks......

Terri's roving at the bottom, and a silk shawl draped over the drying rack. We spent many happy hours talking, drinking, eating, and dyeing. darn near a perfect day, in my book. I'm so lucky to have such great friends!!!!

Here is a "lucy bag" in progress - I'm making it for my mom for christmas. (Hope she doesn't watch this blog!). it's made of handdyed, handspun single-ply yarn - it's gorgeous Icelandic from my friend Lorraine's sheep. I love the icelandic because it takes the colors so beautifully, and it's so strong, even as a single.

Woo hoo, what fun we had!! And I think I'm finally back to natural skin color. Gloves...what gloves? We don't need no stinkin' gloves! We have wine, dye, fiber, good food and great friends, what else could we possibly need?
