A wonderful afternoon splashin' some dyes about...

What can you say about a dye splash about that can't totally be said better by showing some photos. I dyed. I had fun. The crock pot was rockin' and the colours were rollin'...today clicked. Dunno why. Just did.
The poor old drying rack was groaning under the weight of these colourful treasures....Some are 100gms, others are 200 gms. Hehe...I call the big ones "Twanks"..(two hanks)
pictured: Sheepychic "whizz-bang" hand painted Merino roving. 100gms
pictured: Sheepychic "Lillybet" hand painted Merino roving. 100gms.
Pictured: Sheepychic "St. Marc's posie". 100gm Merino Handpainted rovings.
Good news! Getting your hands on some Sheepychic is soon to become a whooolllleeee lot easier thanks to "Sheepychic for you"...a cute little blog-shop running parallel to Sheepychic bloggings. It'll feature my latest goodies available and will have a Shopping Cart system linked up to PAY PAL. Bank Deposits will also be okay. It's still in the building process, but keep posted. Somethin' tells me that these gorgeous Rovings will end up there!! It'll be at http://sheepychicshop.blogspot.com/
All the very best, and thanks for logging into Sheepychic Bloggings. Thanks so much for the lovely emails...you guys are such Yarn junkies! hehe! A couple of emails, also, regarding our little mice! One last little picture...the two little boys. (now living in their own bachelor pad) You can see one sports a lovely long-haired coat, while his brother has a short coat and a perfect bob-tail! These guys are available for adoption...but no snake enthusiasts may apply! hehe
All the best, Ruth....bye for now.

Your rovings look wonderful Ruth, dyeing is great fun isn't it?
I can hardly wait for your Sheepychic Shop to be stocked!

Thanks, Mandie...hehe. Stocking will be a few days, though...I've been a little cheeky and knitted up my favourite hanks over the summer! Hang in there...won't be long.
