Where did all the dyes come from??

For many years I swore I woudn't start dyeing. My reason for that was I didn't have time. I don't know how it came that the plastic box I kept my few dyes in suddenly had filled up with more and more dyes... Today I dyed the BFL/silk yarn I spun for a Shipwreck shawl, and I also found some Finnwool that needed to take a dye bath:


This is what my Shipwreck yarn looks like now. A nice cerise/pink that I will overdye by painting the finished shawl. I wanted a not so even color, so I didn't take off the threads I tied the skein with before washing and the result is a yarn with lighter spots:
