Dyeing

Dyeing and overdyeing

It’s raining again in Vancouver. But let’s rewind back the last few days of dyeing…

Gotland overdyed in indigo

These are hunks of Gotland fleece that were originally dyed in osage, logwood, and osage + green acid dye that have been overdyed in indigo. The process helps unify all the colours and I’m excited about putting this through the carder.

Silk singles soothe the soul
More and more sock yarn

Just being surrounded by colour, even on a gloomy dreary day like today, makes me happy.

    Yeah, it is such a rainy day, no? It makes me want to sit here all day, watching TV and knitting for the rainy winter to come.
