Here’s this week’s yarn a cooking away in my new roaster oven. This is a new thing for me, since I’ve been zapping my yarn in the microwave. The story of why I’d like to get away from that deserves it’s own post, which I will get to someday!
So far, I’m liking it. Lots of yarn fits in there (that is 11 skeins), and I just set it and ignore it for an hour, rather than trying to remember to zap stuff every 5 minutes or so, and switching out my different pots of yarn so they all get cooked.
I showed the roaster to my husband when he came home, and we got to talking about the microwave. He wants it to go away, and I want to be sure the roaster is going to work out well first. (Yes, I’m conservative and hedgy that way). I opened the thing up, and there was the roving I was cooking over the weekend when the power went out. *embarrased grin, here* The extra setting time seemed to do it good though. I was shooting for black, but got a wonderful gradient of purple, pink, and blueish greys. (I did order a different black dye that is supposed to work better….I’m tired of fighting for black!). Once that is all rinsed and dried, I’ll show it off.
