New colours – solids


I finally managed to get some shots of my latest dyeing project. The scarlet and tangerine were a pain to photograph and my white balance is completely blown in daylight at the moment. I will look into taking more photos in the future but what I have took a good couple of hours.

New beginnings


I finally had the opportunity to try out some Omega all-in-one acid dyes yesterday. I went with three primary colours and tried mixing them for orange, green and purple. I was quite happy with the orange, and the green (though it ended up quite variegated). The purple was a disappointment and I think I’ll resort to using a pre-mixed purple (and probably green) in future. Pictures to follow once everything’s dried and been re-skeined. Yarn will also appear in the shop then.
