What kind of weather means dye weather to you? For me it is rainy and cool, so I can enjoy both the warmth of the dye pots and the calm of staying inside in my snug dye kitchen! Today I am creating dark colors, and this batch of antique black is stewing in the electric turkey roasting pan.
For over dyeing wool, I have jars of ready-to-go dissolved dye colors. If something doesn’t come out the way I want it to, sometimes I would opt to add a splash of this and that to make it better. I enjoy experimentation with dyeing.
As I am dyeing, colors will capture my imagination. Look how this mixture of greens look with the purples. What will I do with it? Maybe only stare at it, I am not sure. As far as I am concerned, this wool has accomplished its mission: it has inspired me.
Have a creative and colorful day ~ Karen
