So once I got all the supplies together, I got started. The color recipes I used are at home, so I'll add them to this post later, but have lots of pics to share! Let me know what you think.
After soaking a yard of taupe wool in lukewarm water with a few drops of Dawn and vinegar, I plopped it into the roaster with about 1/2" of water in the bottom.
Put the top on and turn the roaster to 300 degrees for a little over an hour or until the ice has melted. I took the wool out of the roaster and put it into a strainer (used ONLY for dyeing) then gave it a spin in the washer and hung it out to dry. Repeat the process four times with different colors, and Here's the results! Can't wait to use these colors in a rug as soon as I get back from my work trip!
Our garden is producing gangbusters, so last Wednesday I got to work making bread and butter pickles, but with honey instead of sugar.
Getting the cukes ready!
Yummy pickles!!So now I'm in Springfield, MO to do some training for one of our new clients, but come the weekend, I'll be back home crafting and canning! I can't wait!!
