Day 6 TDF

Day 6: The day I learned that my cats really are the bosses around here. Daisy, literally, hangs on the wheel when it isn’t spinning. Maggie lays on my foot on the treadle when I am or am not spinning. Millie has a thing for the lazy kate. Daisy is going crosseyed (ok, she IS part Siamese) watching the wheel turn – for hours on end – head nodding as she is fixed on one spot. Ahhh, boy oh boy.

The good news, is that I am out of acid dyed fiber. Now…I have only locks I’ve dyed with flowers. And I like that SO MUCH MORE! I appreciate all you lovely spinners who are fascinated with color…and I leave all of those dyes to you. I’ve done so much dyeing in the past that my skin is very sensitive to dyes. Carding and spinning take me up close and personal…to the point of swollen fingers which I do not need. So, it’s off to the coreopsis, marigold, fennel, and avocado bins! See ya later, bye! *wave wave*

Can’t wait to see what you get with avocado – I’ve been saving the pits and skins for a while, but haven’t tried them yet.

Thanks, gang! Kate…this pinky red was the last of the acid dyed fiber. It’s blended with bits of fiber dyed with indigo (light blue), purple ruffles basil (slate blue), avocado (warm beige), and coreopsis (orange). I just wanted to get it out of my stash. It makes my hands itch. ;)
