Liz, purty purty stuff, I can relate to trying to clean up the shite, in the US it is just plain shit, I am going to get back to doing that shortly. Honest!
I want to come and hang out with you guys, and play with fiber. Ahh Kansas is a bit of a drive, but maybe someday.

Generally we call it shit here to but I work with a brit.New brunswick is a great place to visit.I am sure we could find room for you if you came to hang out. I am assuming you could be comfortable in a pile of yarn?;)

Liz,
Ever thought about crock pots for dying?
I put about 5 on a timer, no stove watching, gotta love that. I got them all cheap at yard sales, thrift stores etc. The temps vary a bit, but I just turn on the timer for 4-6 hours, and let them cool down in the pot. Also a word of caution. Don't do what I did with fiber reactive dyes, I was very lax about wearing a mask and gloves goggles, and have developed a severe allergy to the stuff. If you want to keep doing this a long time, which looking at your yarns you will have the demand for them. Just get the mask, goggles, and gloves and make your self use them. I know it is a huge pain, but not even being able to be in the same room now when the dye is open is a bigger pain. I get sinus infections just being around the closed jars.
Looking good woman!
