(Joining in with Ginny)
Well, the birch bark dye from last weekend was a bust. Even with copper mordant, it turned out to be just barely ivory. I was hoping for a soft pink with olive undertones. To remedy the problem, Luke and I took a little road trip out to some public land and picked a bunch of woodland sunflowers growing along the edge of the forest. We used the same process as the tansies, using Peace Fleece yarn instead of superwash. I wanted to play around with an after bath and read somewhere (wish I could remember where) to use washing soda to adjust the ph balance. The orange yarn is a little too bright for my taste but will make some really cute Jack Be Little Pumpkins for our fall nature table!
Note to self: Must not knit too many pumpkins and get back on track with holiday knitting.
What are you working on this week?
