Fall colors for the dyedeck
OK...the cornbread is in transit and I have a little time to kill so, time enough to make a fresh start, dyewise.
I washed out all my good stock bottles, made my choices and mixed up this set of dye concentrates which will have to take me through 'til spring. This batch will live in the deck fridge after tomorrows dye session. I'm a profligate waster of dye so I'll be more mindful of that for a minute or two.
Some of these are right out of the ProChem can and few are my own concoctions. All well and good on paper, I know. Time will tell.
Kinda sad that I had no golden yellow but hopeful that sun and sunflower together will zip.
I deliberately left out the straight turquoise..it dominates my magpie brain.
And no black...I never get it right anyway so why waste the cloth?
