Wool Batch 2, 3 and 4.....

I spent Sunday afternoon and Monday evening dying three more color batches.  I'm so in love with this! And I am getting much faster at it.  The first batch took just about all day Saturday but I was in a learning curve. 

This is called Sky Blue in the recipe book but I think I am changing the name to Confederate Blue .... a nice Southern name.  LOL

This was supposed to be a little more on the brown side but it looks a little green in person.

This is supposed to be green.  Good thing 'cause it came out green! A celery green but a green nonetheless.

There are a zillion more colors I want to try.  They won't all be this muted......I'll have to throw some brights in there, too.  I have a feeling that the experimenting will be half the fun!

If I don't "talk" to you all again in the next few days, have a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Even with all the doom and gloom in the world, there is still a lot to be thankful for.

Blessings, Cathi
