dip dyed

Well it was a late night last night but I managed to finish all the granny purses that I should have made ages ago, ah yes, procrastination thou art my evil mistress. So more shibori/ikat purses, vintage linen purses and our new digital print tapestry purses, the photo below doesn't do them justice. I'll be working on more of the tapestry purses once I actually get through to the other side, post Finders Keepers.
I've also managed to get a few balls of our new yarn dyed up, I won't have time to get more dyed and dryed in time for FK but if your quick you can snap some up. Hand dipped dyed slubby wool blend, a 100gm ball will knit you a more than decent scarf, 20 stitched on 15mm for a nice width and length or 12 stitches for an extremely long skinny scarf- or you can make up your own combo. I'm loving it and Dell nearly jumped out of her shoes in excitement when I showed it to her.

I'm trying to press a batch of gloves before I go out to pick stuff up and get to the studio. I think today will be one of those days where I just don't have quite enough time to do everything I need to do.
