Dyeing threads today.  The weather is sunny and warm, so I worked outside.  I ended up with too many greens and blues, so I will have to have another dyeing session to create a complete palette.

  1. Linda, you can *never* have enough greens and blues, IMO 🙂

    yes… it’s strange how you always have more of some colours than others… what dye did you use…?

    procion fiber-reactive dye……….I am not allowing myself to mix any more blue and yellow in the next batch…….they all have a lovely mottled look, because I rubbed the excess dye off of my gloves with the skeins, and used some to mop up the mess I made, so I got some great rare color despite all the green and blue! Maybe it has to do with the fact that I live in the desert, and there is not enough green and blue……
