More yarn than I can use!

Through my daughter's coaching, I was able to pick up 10 unwashed fleeces for free from Craigslist. I took them to Zeilinger's for processing, and after several months, they have been turned into yarn! Half is double knitting weight and the other half is sock yarn weight.

Next step is to dye some of the wool - I'll have to skein it before dyeing, kind of defeats the purpose of having it put on cones, but oh well.

I have some acid dyes on my shelf, but maybe I'll do some natural dyeing as well. I understand dandelion root makes a lovely pink.
