Dyeing With Uncle Vincenzio

It's been a busy couple of weeks, dyeing lots of sock yarn for Uncle Vincenzio's shop. There was a 2 day Fiber Festival organized by Erinesstra Von-Hootenburg, who runs the Enchanted Ewe Woolery.

This afternoon all of the participating shops gathered at the town square for a party and fiber market. Erinesstra invited Uncle Vincenzio to participate, so he needed plenty of dyed sock yarn for the ladies to peruse.
For the last 2 weeks we were dyeing non-stop, which then followed with the required winding and skeining of the finishes yarns.

The party was great fun and everyone was admiring our works. We also sold a good deal, which was also good.
A good number of the ladies are interested in taking Uncle Vincenzio's class on Fiber Color Transfiguration, that he will be teaching at Erinesstra's shop this summer.
