Dye Day October 2009

June and I had an incredible time playing with color. We used goldenrod that June had picked that morning, along with cochineal and indigo. We dyed both yarn and silk scarves, with space dyeing as well as immersion dyeing. I even tried my resale shop silk blouse! It turned out a mottled light and medium blue, with the cut edges of ruching taking on a deeper blue. Quite lovely.

We both smelled of smoke, though, as the fire needed constant attention. All in all, a great day!
