This week its been all about painting yarn and fibre. I had a good run on needle felting wool and quickly ran out at the shop so I busted out the crock pot and all the bottles of dye and got to work. I also gave a cone of 95% wool 5% mohair boucle yarn a makeover. It turned into 9 generous skeins of painted yarny goodness.

|Voila! Freshly painted skeins ready for knitting, crocheting, or weaving into something fabulous.|

|This skein was brought back from Spain and given to me as a gift. I have dyed it in "wheat" and I plan to knit a beaded lace shawl.|
