Well I decided to continue my Spinning homework and carded three of four batts I colored the other night. It all went well and the colors came out pretty good. The only problem I am having is the same as the other night with the Burgundy one (It is to the right of the moss green in the top photo and above the moss green on the bottom one)...it is still bleeding color...I know I rinsed it well and used enough vinegar because I forgot the first time to put the vinegar in and so the second time I used a lot....something I just don't understand....oh well.....now I need spin some of them.......

Anyway....the colors are from Wilton's cake dye...I love using it because it always does something unexpected as you can see.....
Starting with the green from which every picture you want to start with here is the run down:
Green is Moss Green....there are some really dark parts maybe black...not sure until it is carded
Copper - The picture doesn't due it justice....it has some strange hues to it
Sky blue - Love it....it split as you can see
Burgundy - Oh this was the one I have issues with...first I forgot to put in the setting agent and rinsed and rinsed until my fingers were turning pink and then I said...hmmmmm I think I missed something because the fiber is going white....well I did.....it was the vinegar so back to the pot it went. The second time worked......hmmmm works when you use the right stuff....but it came out really strange can't tell if the color is right or wrong or split. I guess when I card it I will know.
I am only going to try and put some of them through the carder only once so I don't loose the split colors....hopefully that will work.
I hope the spin-in today went great and hello to everyone in the group.

While walking my property one night I looked up and saw that my Palo Verde tree was growing a circle.....after a closer look a spider had neatly and carefully made a web using the Palo Verde leaves as a frame for her web. If you open the picture you can just see the web....I guess she is patiently waiting for dinner....from the looks of it no one has visited yet..........
I would like to heart fully thank:
