then, on monday, we had a dye party here with my mom and friend. we used the greener shades sampler dye kit, some vague instructions, some pure guessing, one phone call to another friend and fellow acadia spinner, and lots of faith in ourselves. nahum pretty much got to dye my whole batch (which was just over a pound of my very first kid mohair from our dear skittery goat, lancelot. i still have his other kid fleece which i won't be dyeing:)) nahum's favorite colors are pinks and purples and pastel-y things...so in his world it came out great...in my world...eh. once spun up (no picture yet) it wasn't too bad (in small doses). i am spinning right now for a blanket for nahum's bed (my mom is making one for zev). we hope and hope that next winter the boys will move out of our bed into their own room...but if not...that is okay too. it will be bittersweet to see them go...aaahhh this post is about fiber...not parenting. back on track. i did get to dye some of my fiber the way i wanted to and i really love the way it came out. i only did little batches so i could experiment with it all (since i have never done any dyeing before). nahum and all had a blast testing out the dyes and the process behind it all. and i believe zev had fun playing with his smoothie.
