Adventure in Dyeing

The roving drying on my shower curtain rod.

If your anything like me, you're wondering: what the hell is that? Well its a small length of roving I took from the 4oz of ecru colonial that I bought from Uncommon Threads. In the anticipation of my wheel arriving, I was itching to do something with the roving so I dyed this strip. I used kool aid and it wasn't as messy as I thought. I laid it out on saran wrap, colored it with the different colors, wrapped it up and stuck it in a large stew pot to steam for about 25 minutes. I rinsed and dried.
