More dyeing

These are what I dyed on the weekend - took an age to dry in the rainy wet weather we are having.

That is my favourite one - some greens, some blues and a splash of darker blue and a very small splash of fuchsia then saddened with a short bath in a dilute black.

The bottom skeins were overdyed in a dilute black bath. I like them both for different reasons - the brightness and clear colours of the top skeins and the smokey subtleness of the bottom ones.

I am having fun experimenting with these and just found another bag of the yarn I am using to dye so another session in the not too distant future I think.

The natural dyeing will some a bit later - I have some lace weight Cormo that I want to do in naturals but I want to do some experimenting first - so the experimenting will be 1 session and the actual dyeing a day or perhaps a week later.

Made progress on the Triangles within Triangles and am back onto the border (again- after tinking 1 repeat of the pattern) and if my Brahms Sextet doesn't go too long tonight, I will likely have it finished and block it tomorrow with pictures to come soon after.

That first one is beautiful. It says springtime and freshness and newness.

They look goregous. Have you considered selling them on your website? I love the middle one -- reminds me of a sunset.

They are beautiful. I really like the effect of the diluted black. I'll have to try that sometime. I'm always dyeing things too bright for my taste.
