The day after the Tour ends is always a jolt to the system. There's been so much preparation, so much spinning and then......nothing. After everything is cleaned up and packed away, the house seems too empty. I can't stand to see the wheels without anything on them so new projects need to be planned.
I want stash diving but couldn't bring myself to use a braid I already had. I've got quite a collection of beautifully dyed fiber but I love them-as braids. Weird, yes? Instead I looked for something to dye. This bare Polwarth was just what I was looking for.
It got a soak in water with a splash of vinegar.
Then I dumped it into some jelly jars of dye and gave it a spin in the microwave.
It's clown barf but I really like clown barf.
Now that it is drying, it looks more like unicorn barf.
