Now this was fun. A friend handed me what I considered to be a beautiful knitted pale blue silk shawl, and asked me to dye it. I first considered dip-dying so I could get a value gradation, but realized that since it was crescent-shaped, that wouldn’t work. She’d given me free rein as to hue, which is always “a challenge” (that is to say, terrifying). I finally decided that I would dab a few different colors on the edges that would disappear once I dyed the whole piece. Well, guess what? I just kept going. The fiber (may have had some wool also) seemed to joyfully receive the color. Most fun I’ve had with dyes in a long time!
