I have committed dye-ing–

BOW BEFORE ME!

Well, not really.  Y’all don’t have to do that.  I’m just being silly.

But!  I have washed like 10-12 lbs. of (local) alpaca today and dyed it and a bunch of domestic wool, silk, merino, and mohair today.

I may not have gotten my studio cleaned today, but I did do this…basically, so I had more stuff to spin.

Which means, I’m going to have to card all of this first.

*SIGH*

…I’m never going to get the black to come our right. *is sad*

But, see–

Sudsy alpaca.

Mind you, this was about 10 minutes before I managed to face-plant into the (mostly) empty vat and bruised the hell outta myself.  I’m graceful, I am.

Never let it be said that artists don’t sacrifice for (to) their art.  Art gets pissy if it isn’t sacrificed to on the regular.

I’m totally not joking.

*is joking–kinda*

Oh!  I classed on Saturday, and it was the largest class I’ve had yet:  eight people.  I even sold some yarn.

So, if y’all wanna know the super-basics of drop-spindle making, here’s vidlet.

I love drop spindles.  They’re totally physics in action!

For art!

For science!

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand, the quiet set-up before the storm class.

Okay, I’m gonna go and tend to my various bruises by flumping somewhere comfortable.

Courage.
