It’s roasting in here!

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.
