Somehow it’s Friday already! Wow this has been an amazingly busy week! I just love it when the week goes by quickly and lots has been accomplished.
Of course most everything is in the almost done stages, but I thought I’d show you a little bit of what today has included on my agenda.
First priority today was getting my cell phone pocket pattern printed and bagged:
Next up this morning was to get the yarns and scarves I dyed last night rinsed and soaking in the fixative:
I always use a fixative in my final soak of my dyes. I’ve not yet had anyone come back with a complaint about colors bleeding and I attribute it to taking that one extra step.
Of course, sometimes, when we slip, or we drop something in the process, we do get a bit of dye migration….FABs, this pic’s for you gals:
And you should see the other side of my hands………okay, no, maybe you shouldn’t. I know, I should be wearing gloves, but right now I am actually between sizes of gloves (mediums are tight, larges are almost falling off?)…..and when I work with the scarves and the yarns, I really need to be able to feel what I’m doing. Hence, the blue hands……….which is why I always have Reduran in the studio!
Off to go dye some blue fabrics now…………………..
