When Your Water Tastes Like Dye

You know you’ve been at it too long. You’d think I’d learn, wouldn’t you? Note to Self: Do not attempt to repeat the feat of dyeing two batches of roving and two skeins of yarn in four different colorways simultaneously. It doesn’t work well. You inevitably end up feeling rushed, cranking out things you don’t like as much, and spending too much time in the kitchen.

I’ve got the smell of vinegar hovering in my nose and the odd scent of dye solution clings right behind it. I can smell it now at the computer . . . although the computer is in the kitchen where the afore-mentioned things are simmering. Even my nice, clean, cool water glass smells like vinegar. And, I wound up spending way more time than I had planned, so I’m hogging the oven when my sister was supposed to be making a birthday cake! Aaaah! The results had better be worth it.
