Carnival of Colour
Some more of my yarn before it is re-skeined. You can see how strong the colours are much better when the colour is in bulk!
I've finished the first set of dyes that I bought a week before Christmas. Now I've figured out what works and what doesn't, I 'm getting down to the serious business of writing down my mixtures and recording colours by the simple method of keeping a small piece of yarn! First the dye colours straight [1 teaspoon to 1 cup], then 50/50 mix of each colour with every other. After those 45 colours, I 'll do the 3:1 blends; there'll be 72 of those!
