A very belated public thank you to Jan-Knit!!

I must firstly apologise for being so late...Jan-Knit knows, of course, that something very bad happened at the end of September, and for her support she deserves all the best in life! I know from the postings going on here that there are many wonderful pals around, sending goodies, but Jan-Knit must be one of the best ever...see what she sent me:

Vegan Pal 2 - Thanks Jan-Knit!

the green bunny on its own was already a much loved surprise!! And then I started rewinding the magic ball...

Vegan Pal 2.... et voila'!

I adore everything!!
I will do a proper post on my blog, which needs urgent updating, but in the meantime virtual hugs go to Jan-Knit for this beautiful present, and congratulations to her and all those who have given a try to the veggie/vegan life, way to go girls!

What a great package! I'm glad you too were so lucky, you totally deserved this.
Now I can't wait to see your spinning and dyeing (?) results. How fun!

It was my pleasure, Yowlyy. I thoroughly enjoyed being your pal and getting to know you! I can't wait to see what you spin out of the soysilk!! Love, Jan-Knit

What a thoughtful package you got! :-)

I cannot wait to see your dying! I too am a bit scared of trying... LOL

Thank you all for the comments :) I am an absolute chicken when it comes to experiment with stuff that is somewhat "irreversible"...what if I mess it up???
A question for those experienced spinners: is it easier to colour before spinning, or shall I spin first? And would dyeing in the microwave be compatible with the soysilk??? Hmmm...questions...questions...

Your choice about dyeing before or after...each gives you a different effect. As for the dyeing process, you can do it just like you would wool. (I did send instructions, right?) The SoySilk is protein, so takes up the dye in the same way. As for "if you mess it up?"...oh, well. We learn and invent new things from our experiments and mistakes. Plus, I can send you more!!! Go for it!
