Busy dying . . . . . wool. . . . .

I just spent the last two days dying wool and have some wonderful new colors!

Butter . . . .


Rose . . . . 


Green #1 . . . .


Green #2 . . . .


Some blue/green color . . . .


This is Pumpkin Patch, already on the web but I just had to show you how the plaid looked over-dyed with the pumpkin.


Green #1 and #2 are two different colors but didn't photograph well.  I hope they scan better.  The reason for the names is....the colors to me didn't look like the name of the recipe I used.  So I think I will have to come up with new names.  Either that or number them all!  This naming is harder than I thought.  I had wanted to give all my wools some significant Southern name but just don't feel THAT creative yet.

In the meantime, I am off to scanning them and putting them on the website.  Hopefully I will come up with some cute name soon!

Blessings, Cathi

Yummy!
Perhaps inspiration for names can come from the nail polish or lipstick section. They always have fun names!! Fun to see you've been busy with your wool!!
