I have Spun and now I Dye

This weekend I took my completed handspun yarn and dyed it a suer bright red. It is only fitting that my very first handmade yarn be dyed in my favorite color. I found the process to be very easy and surprisingly enough I did not make a mess. I know I have a lot to learn about spinning and dyeing, but for my first attempt at both I think I did a decent job. Let me know what you Think!
54 Yards of Hand Spun Wool

The Dye Bath is Ready!

In it goes!

Look! My spoon matches my yarn!

Yarn is hanging out to dry.

The finished product!
I named the yarn "Cereza", it means Cherry in Spanish.

Until next time, Happy Knitting!
