Where does the time go?

Here it is, more than a week since the Unspun Heroes last spin-in and I still haven't posted the pictures from the previous one! Have been meaning to do so for Quite Some Time, so without further ado, here are some pics from our February 8th gathering:

There was a fair amount of spinning...





...which required some carding as well:



There was also a bit of knitting...


...but mostly there was dyeing! There were tons of dye baths...




... containing both natural...




...and chemical dyes:


Or maybe Chris just likes to wear that mask - who can say?

Some folks painted the dye right onto their fibre rather than using a dye bath:


And some threatened to paint on me. I name no names. *cough*Prune*cough*
