Yarn School Again!

Yes, I do love yarn school. This year I again stayed for the dye lab and I am really happy with how all of my fibers came out this year. Though I will admit, I did have to overdue one to be happy with it. The most interesting one that I dyed that could have failed horribly is one of my favorites! Instead of just randomly pouring the dye to have splotches, I decided to paint the photo I was using as inspiration onto the fiber with the dyes. The photo is the one on the bottom right of the paper I was holding and what you see is the backside of the fiber after I flipped it to make sure the dye penetrated so it is a mirror image.

Thanks to Adrien of Hello Yarn for taking this photo and letting me use it!
 Below are the two sides of the braided and coiled fiber. I keep thinking that I should lay it back out and see if the image is even somewhat recognizable.

And another two I dyed up
