Here is the onion skin-dyed yarn drying on the line. Yummy colour, isn’t it?
Here it is dried and ready to use:
The colour is actually closer to the top picture.
And here is some more yarn being brought to a simmer – this has a mishmash of St Johns wort, the remains of the onion skin dyebath and a couple of nettle teabags which I chucked in for good measure! Talk about unscientific… The yarn has been mordanted with copper.
It actually turned out a mid brown colour and is drying upstairs as I type. Photo later.
Here is the half knitted to-be-felted bag. I have still got about 30 rows to do and the yarn is disappearing at an alarming rate!
You will notice I have tweaked the blog colour a bit and made a few changes and additions to the sidebar. If you find it isn’t behaving itself for you, do let me know.
