Back At It!

After unpacking Monday from the show, it became apparent that I needed to paint some more warps and skeins. So, when I had time, I wound several warps.
There's a lot more space at the craft center than my studio. However, we have to schedule time there because our weaving space is only classroom space for the whole center. Luckily, it was free. So I loaded my car Saturday afternoon and yesterday afternoon I drove there.
It takes quite a bit of equipment to dye yarns!
The best part are the risers for the tables. You absolutely need than to save your back!
That warp looks all black but once rinsed out, it'll be shades of 4 different blacks.
I'm heading back there this morning to finish the rest of my painting. There's a good possibility that another Tuesday Weaver will join me.
So the rest of the week will involve a lot of rinsing and rinsing. I've wound another warp to go on my loom while these dry. The Foothills Craft Show is less than a month away. All the Tuesday Weavers are busy getting ready for that.
So, weave on!

Hey! Yell at me the next time you do this. Many hands make for light rinsing. Can't wait to see how these turn out.
