So I've been really busy lately but I've been able to keep up with posting over at the gryffindor blog for the HPKCHC, so there's no excuse for my lack of posting. I hope my fabulous adventure in dyeing can help by keeping you distracted.
 I used this tutorial to get me started. and Picked 3 colors Pink, Blue and Green. then I started squeezing the colors on to the roving.When I was finished it got wrapped up in saran wrap and rolled up like sushi and put in a pot to steam for about an hour. When I pulled it out of the pot, I realized that the blue kinda took over. So next time I'll have to be aware of how that works out. 
But after it dried and was  braided, I really like how it turned out. I can't wait to see how it will look spun up. I'm just itching to try it again. Though I only have  a few more rovings to dye. But my sister did just pick me up some more wool. 

This spinning thing is sooo awesome.

Great Video Tute.

I found this video about how not to get ladders when working in the round with a Purl row. I think it is really helpful to anyone who'd going to knit in the round. Watch it and LMK what you think.
