And more dyeing

As Kate (of riverside cottage fame) is now away on a sabbatical, I have to take responsibility for my own dye days. On Monday I locked myself away from kittens to produce this:

I’m pleased because – although these are far from perfect – I am getting much better at the lighter shades. And sometimes I even get the colour I intended!

      Thanks for the tip! I will google forthwith. And the yarn is 2/24 alpaca/silk from the Chester Wool Co. You can buy wholesale if you order 5 kg or more (and it needn’t all be the same yarn).
