Drying Dyeing

Below are two of the batches drying on my clothes line, the yellow and black pieces. No, I'm not a Steelers fan! You can also see the gloves I used to protect my hands from the dye, it takes a LOT of squeezing after taking them out of the pot to get most of the dye out of the fabric before hanging them to dry. In between batches I am cutting up the plastic bags, eating, and reading my book. Right now the scarlet and dark green batches are steeping, by the time they are ready to rinse, these will be dry and ready to press.
