I have been hand painting rovings, yarns and scrape book samples. If the cat gets too close, she may be hand painted as well.
Last night, I had to put my spatula down and force myself to back away from the dye pot. I have been losing days doing this and nothing else has been getting done.
Indian Summer 1 was in the dye pot all on its own and you can see even more photos in the album on the Alba Ranch Face Book page.
The Rainbow dye pot had 3 separate rovings in it. I will include a photo of each as although they were in the same dye pot, they are NOT the same. Each is for sale in the shop and more photos can be seen on the Alba Ranch Face book page.
I also listed the Fall 1 series. This is 7 skeins of merino mohair blend from my own critters that I hand painted using Greener Shades dyes. Again, same dye lot with each skein being different and still working well together. What a variety of colors in the same dye pot. I was so fascinated by the process and about giddy with excitement to take the lid off and see how the colors came together each time.
This is only half of the items that are photographed and dried. I will try to get the rest up in the next day or two. In the mean time, I have 10 more skeins of 100% Angora Rabbit that are drying and those will be added later as well.
