Wow, this week has just zipped by. Or maybe not, I have been kind of swamped at work (but in a productive way for a change). I am gathering together my various lobster pots and am going into the dark and rarely trodden section of my crafting supplies to fetch out my dying stuff.
The lobster pots were a yard-sale find and I ended up with 3 of them in decent dying sizes for $5 USD. They were still in their plastic wrap even, so they were a good deal that has helped me out over the years. I like to use Dharma Trading Company's dyes for both cotton/linen/rayon types and for protein based stuff like silk/wool. It's not what I'll be using today on the cotton bags, though. I have some RIT left over from a fund-raising project, so I'm going to use that up since it's already paid for.
Yeah, not the most exciting combo but it does an acceptable job on cottons.... where I should theoretically be focusing.
Not sure how much dying will be accomplished today, but I'm going to take a solid stab at it.
I have these waiting in the wings for acid dying:
From right to left, single spun tussah, fingering weight wool, mid-weight alpaca/silk lace, and light-weight lambswool lace.
I'm looking for a particular tint and haven't been able to find it for sale. I figure since I know what I want I should take a stab at creating it. Anyhoo, if you see someone who has dye marks that end at suspicious glove demarcation lines... just pretend I'm not as crazy as I suspect this makes me.
