Cupid Puked Pink all Over the Studio

Pink and Purple Fibers ready to steam after dye I had a massive dyed day the other day and guess what the major color theme was?  Yup!  Cupid just came along and puked pink all over the studio.  With Valentine’s Day coming up and spring just around the corner, it was time to bust out the pink shades. Here are the fibers hanging up to dry:

Pink Wool DryingOnce dried, I blended a few of the colors together with both more reds and some yellows and created these carded batts:

Giving soap to a loved one is a funny thought for the holiday of love.  They do make excellent teacher, family, or co-worker gifts.  Unless you need to tell your significant other they stink or to clean up their act….then by all means! Felted Soap is the perfect gift. 😉Pink Spring Felted SoapsWith the freshly dyed pink fibers, I also created a new “Fluff to String” handspun yarn.  Here is the basket of fluff:Basket of carefully selected fibers to be turned into Handmade YarnThe Carded Batt:
