A friend from another board I am on dyes wool in these fantastic colorways!! She gets inspiration, and whew! This is what comes of it. She has a blog too, where she explains her inspiration: http://atimetodye.wordpress.com/

First off, I've taken some time off for 2 co-ops. One I've finished, and one is underway. And then I have another in a couple of weeks.
These 1st pics are from the co-ops...

The completed group of yarns that went to a yahoo group that bought from me.

From Bottom L- Top Right
5 Good Earth, 1 Treasure in Clay Jars (blue trim), 4 Rachel (brick red trim)
1 Thanksgiving, 1 Fruitful Vine
2 Eden, 4 Emory, 2 Flamingos

Then for the co-op in progress...

And LOTS of new ones!!!:lostit: I love coming up with new colorways!!

I'm pretty sure this is my favorite one out of my new ones. It's called "Good Gifts" and it's on Peruvian.

Inspired by a Tiffany's box!

And this one is really funny! It's called "Wisdom". It was inspired by a shirt that I had in HS, and still wear. The picture is of my my Sophomore year of HS, early 90's. So funny.:giggle:

"Jordan" is on Rambouillet, and was inspired by an ariel view of the Jordan River. My friend, Nesreen, who has a son named Jordan, sent the inspiration picture to me.

"Abba" was inspired by my friend Heather, who wanted sherbet colors and chocolate!! Thanks Heather!:thumbsup:

"Consuming Fire" was inspired by one of my favorite bands, Third Day, who has a song titled the same. I love it.

This is "Wilma" on Beaverslide, named in honor of our head Mentor at my MOPS group. She has been an inspiration to me for the last 3 years, and she was wearing a sweater with these colors a couple of weeks ago at our meeting.

Yep, Amy. Those are mine. I've been dyeing for a couple of months now, and absolutely love it. It's totally my passion. And because of that, my knitting has suffered greatly. :aww:
