Dye fun.


First time using acid dye.


Arrange sliver of Blue faced wool in the bottom of my new dying pot 😉


Mix up my yummy colours.


Way too much red me thinks….opps just realized that I totally messed up the recipe! Duh!
Turned out not too bad.


But WAY too much dye left so added bright yellow to brighten it up a bit. (In for a penny, in for a pound eh?)


Which is sorta looking like this…


So all in all a good learning experience. I can’t wait for it to dry.

Mean while I was fooling around with this pattern. It is called Capucine by Adela Illichmanova


I used some of my older wool that is thicker than what I make today (about 12 WPI) and dyed using a loosely wrapped ball technique and dyed with black cherry Koolaide but it turned out pretty well.



Old mother Hubbard! 😉 but I am sooo useless at taking “selfies”

Little loose but good for a prototype, I like the technique I used to get this graded colour. I think I will do it again with a beautiful Ashford blue.

Now I am sorta turning in circles today, tons of things I want to do but don’t know where to start. I think I will start with a tea and then hide all the threads on this baby panel I did yesterday.


No shortage of things to do it is just that I want to do ALL of them at ONCE. 😉

Have a great day everyone.
