Busy me...

I spent most of this past Tuesday dying with my new Cushing dyes. I also picked up some Jacquard dyes to play with as well. I had some 100% wool thick n thin yarn that I want to use to make a quick bulky sweater for this winter, and I was trying to go for color combinations that I don't normally gravitate to. So the thick n thin got dyed with different shades of brown, periwinkle, blue and a splash of orange. I was pretty worried when it was drying, but now that I've wound it up and knitted a swatch, it's growing on me.

I also dyed some silk/merino- for some reason that didn't take the dye very well. I think I need to dilute my dye less when using it on silk.
