Ages ago we decided that trying to dye on a Tuesday wasn't a good idea. Far too much going on and chaos ruled! So we were dyeing on Thursday which sort of worked ok but still had problems. Saturday we had another dye day. I think we're onto something here. Saturday works much better for everyone and is probably the day from now on that we'll schedule as a dye day.
Roz brought her friend Lisa along and they were dyeing skeins for the center plus a few for themselves as well. Alot of discussions on which colors to do and how intense the colors should be.....
I love how warps get painted and the color combnations that people come up with!
The best tips for dyeing: buy those risers they sell to raise the beds of kids going to college. They saved our backs til about 3pm! when we started groaning. We raised our tables so that we didn't have to bend over them and paint our warps.
Other tip: take a chance, combine colors to make new ones and try putting colors together that you might not have before. You don't know how they'll look next to each other or how they'll look woven with a color you hadn't thought of using with that warp...
So I'm just back in town this afternoon. Guess what I'm doing the rest of the day? I have 2 warps and 4 skeins to rinse, rinse, rinse!!
Until next week, keep weaving....and winding those warps to dye!
