Cold days, warm dyepot

I have spent the past day getting some much needed dyeing done. Stock is low at the local store so I have dyed 2 and 1/2 pounds and am mordanting another 4# today so I can do more dyeing this week. It is bloody cold here! No other way to describe it. The wind is about 10 mph and the day temps are hovering around 10 above. But I closed the shed door to warm it up a bit and I can do the dyeing with one foot back in the kitchen. Works really well actually. The dyes from left to right are simple: logwood purple, logwood purple/madder and weld. Love that weld! Love them all really. The two left batches are on gray yarn from our Jackie and the weld is on white yarn from our Crystal. Back to the mordanting....
