This is what I did today. More dyeing! This time it was all about the BLUE. Had a request from a regular COLORBOMB Creations customer for more blue, soooooooooo... Think this is blue enough?
I even found a bag of washed/undyed Wensleydale locks to whip up for her! I tossed 'em in to the crockpot dyebath after pulling the wool out, & there was plenty of dye left in there to get this gorgeous cornflower blue.
Still getting learning some of the nuances of acid dyeing. Took about 5 rinses to get the water to run clear with the first batch (wool), but the second batch (Wensleydale) ran clear on the first rinse. Go figure! I did learn something today though: turns out that it takes a really long time to heat set dye if you don't plug the crockpot in! ;)
Tomorrow will probably be another dye day, but in the meantime I'm gonna leave you with this frog I found on the side of our BBQ yesterday. He was only about 1.5 inches from top to bottom; he looks freakish this big, but I wanted to put my new camera through its paces. It rocked the closeup!
