I want to dye, but I am afraid...

That I'll fuck it up again! ARGH! It takes so long to make up this yarn I want to dye (wool and silk), and I want to dye this hank turquoise with intermitten/random black....so it looks like what a turquoise nugget would look like. Plus, turquoise and black go together so well.

So I was thinking. Dye the whole hank turquoise....then overdye with black using a squirt bottle, or just dripping it from a brush, to help with the randomness of it. Then I would have to steam it to set the black. Does this sound like another flop?

Until next time...

    I have read in a dyeing book "Yarns to dye for" where a yarn was made in the watermelon colors and she used a black magic marker to make the seeds. Interesting?
    Hope it works out for you!


Thanks for the feedback! Most comments will be published right away except for you pathetic spammers who's messages will never see the light of day. If you are offended by having to fill one a "prove you are not a robot" form, my goodness...chill out! It takes two seconds to do and saves me a ton spam to have to filter through and it takes two seconds, MAX. If you are that easily offended, maybe you should simply not comment, and seek some counseling.
