During Ani's workshop, I was busy being her assistant, chief photo documentarian and head chef so I wasn't able to lay hands on wool nor dye. I watched (and photographed) as others did their thing but for myself, nothing. I also listened carefully to what Ani was saying.
After the dust settled and everyone headed home however, to the dye pots I went. And what do I now have in my hot, little hands?
Oh, only this....
Two skeins of machine spun Merino, DK weight.
And this: (it is all Merino/Silk, 85/15%).
A closer look at how the wool and silk absorb the dye differently, resulting in gorgeousness.
Oh yes, Ani done taught me right.
