a little more dyeing

Probably shouldn't blog late at night- I just forgot what I was about to say! But isn't that pretty?

I tried marigolds (tagetes) again. I'd had a go with them last summer but didn't have many flower heads to work with (still got good results though) so as I've loads in the garden this year I thought I'd have another go with a plentiful supply. The left-hand skein is the first go, the right-hand one is what was left over. I wasn't sure there was enough colour left actually but it's come out a pretty lemon yellow. As usual photographing it is tricky - in reality the darker skein is quite a strong colour, a bit harsh really.

Brain not co-operating now - good night!
