I am dyeing lots of yarn. Special orders, webstore, LYSs, festivals - I need to stock up.
It has been raining for at least 10 days. In fact I can't remember a full day without any rain.
One thing that can majorly hamper yarn dyeing is that the yarn doesn't dry fast enough. I have 4 drying racks, which altogether accommodate about 60 skeins, a whole day's worth of work. Usually I take one day's skeins down in the morning and dye the next batch.
This is yesterday's yarn, still not dry. It's getting here, but it's not dry enough to wind into skeins.
There is yarn all over my house, because guess what? It's raining again outside.
Fans are not helping.
Yarny home decor.
These are desperate times, and they call for desperate measures.
I am putting the yarn in the dryer.
I finally remembered that I have one of those shoe shelves for my dryer - you set the item that needs drying (but can't be tumbled) on it, close the door, and turn on the dryer.
3 skeins take 10 minutes on low (don't want to fry the yarn).
I have about 70 skeins to go.
We're having take-out tonight, probably.
