I started dyeing this morning. I felted 3 white scarves yesterday and wrapped some marbles in again shibori style. I dyed them separately today, each in only a minimum amount of water with dye powder sprinkled on. Now they hang under the carport for drying
It took quite a while until they were all finished, so I used the time between to dye some silk scarves. The results are not 100% what I wanted, I like the pinkish one and the red/orange. With the others I am not sure at the moment, I might add a bit more colour.
Then I took another fleece out to wash
|first sorting out the good and not so good bits|
|nice lamb locks|
|soaking in hot water with dishwash liquid|
|after spinning in the washing machine drying|
|not abolutely clean but a big part of grease and sand has been removed|
Here is another scarf I made some days ago, it is just grey gotland wool and and in the center some white polwarth. I am not really happy about, it looks a bit boring I think it needs something, I have to think about....
Between all of this I got 3 loads of washing done, already folded and we also went for a little cruise around our favourite beaches. It was such a nice sunny day and we had yummy chips at the matauri bay top shop. I collected some pebbles at Mahinepua, I am thinking about to combine some with felt.
But before, I want to finish the little dress for Storm I started on the knitting machine....
