OverDyeing Wool and A New Project

I've read that overdyeing wool can be addictive but how could that be?
Well I just tried it for the first time and I get it!
Mixing colors and mixing wools...each wool takes the dye differently.
You don't know what you piece will look like until it's all dry.
How fun is that!
A surprise when you open the dryer!
A good surprise...not one of those bad surprises when you didn't check the pockets and a red pen ends up in the dryer with red spots on your clothes and dryer...not fun.

Using the newly dyed wool in a project.
I bought this pattern while on girls weekend.
I can't wait to fininsh it. I usually don't use patterns for my penny rugs.
I'll show it off when it's finished.
Enjoy your day,

You are motivating me to get some done! I've had dye here for a year and too afraid to try it!!! Your pieces came out wonderful!
