Adventures in Dyeing

As promised here are the pictures of my adventures dyeing the wool roving.  Really it was pretty mundane and straight forward.  Last evening as I was cruising the internet I thought "why don't I dye another half pound of each color".  So I did.  Now I have a full pound of each color, enough to get started on the hooking.

Here are the colors I chose plus the natural ecru color.
