I'm Dyeing Over Here

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.

Gorgeous, gorgeous stuff. Also, my question regarding Finn's whereabouts has been answered.
Beautiful sky behind him.
