Half Way There

Today I spent most of the morning out on the deck. That sounds like a nice relaxing way to spend the morning does it not?

While a morning spent out on the deck relaxing would be a great thing, that was not the case this morning. Not even close.

This morning the first thing on my agenda was to dye up 11 - 4ounce sections of Superwash BFL Roving. So bright and early I was out playing with the dyes. A few hours later I had some beautiful colored rovings ready to get photographed and placed into my shop for everyone to see.

So I will give you a sample of them to drool at here:
The first colorway is in honor of the Blockheadradio.com Morning BrewHaHa, aptly named Brewhaha
The next is Lilac:


Carnation:
Yankee Doodle:
Field of Sunflowers:
I do hope you noticed a difference in the pictures, as I also spent some time creating a light box to use when I take pictures.
I have to say that it was not a hard thing to make and the difference it makes in getting good light in the photographs is amazing.
So Tomorrow will be the day I dye up the Superwash Merino rovings, stay tuned for more eye candy, and check the shop for the other new ones!
