Somehow it’s Friday already!  Wow this has been an amazingly busy week!  I just love it when the week goes by quickly and lots has been accomplished.

Of course most everything is in the almost done stages, but I thought I’d show you a little bit of what today has included on my agenda.

First priority today was getting my cell phone pocket pattern printed and bagged:

Check, DONE!

Next up this morning was to get the yarns and scarves I dyed last night rinsed and soaking in the fixative:

Check DONE

I always use a fixative in my final soak of my dyes.  I’ve not yet had anyone come back with a complaint about colors bleeding and I attribute it to taking that one extra step.

Of course, sometimes, when we slip, or we drop something in the process, we do get a bit of dye migration….FABs, this pic’s for you gals:

And you should see the other side of my hands………okay, no, maybe you shouldn’t.  I know, I should be wearing gloves, but right now I am actually between sizes of gloves (mediums are tight, larges are almost falling off?)…..and when I work with the scarves and the yarns, I really need to be able to feel what I’m doing.  Hence, the blue hands……….which is why I always have Reduran in the studio!

Off to go dye some blue fabrics now…………………..

    LOL — love your blue hands! Mine right now are various shades of purple, red, orange, and yellow speckled all over! You’d think I’d learn, but I get too impatient to mess with them — especially when hand-painting my yarns!

    Lovely colors! =)

    Uh huh ! Those blue hands are a definite give away. Love your pattern and know your vending will be successful.
