Dyeing

Some days I want to gough my eyes out.

And other days, I am saved by the beauty in things like this:

Depth and light.

It’s 100g of 20/2 cultivated silk. First dyed lightly in weld. Then dyed in marigold. And finally overdyed in madder. It’s absolutely gorgeous in the skein. And I am grateful for the light it brings into my life. When all else is dark and despondent, I am thankful that I can see and see beauty in something as simple as colour.

    Working with that would be like handling sunshine! I’m such a colour-whore that I almost bought of box of Purdy’s candy jellies just for the colours alone. I’m glad that you’re putting up pretty pictures regularly again.

    Very pretty colours! Plant dyes are so much fun, aren’t they? Guaranteed to coordinate.
