I promised I’d do one more skein, so here goes:

Look, it’s all tied up! Cotton, so no, I hope it won’t bleed. It’s what I had. Because I was too impatient to go searching. And remember, I was supposed to be doing something else, something USEFUL, like?

Didn’t I mention using less powder? A light sprinkle? Well, don’t apply it outside on a windy day, then. Also don’t think you can remember which cup is which when you’ve mixed 2 different shades that look exactly the same in the powder.

But hey, I kept off the greens, pink and yellow. Some progress at least.

The previous two skeins, all untangled and rewound. The first one I’m ok with, the second not so much.

So I dunked it in a ½% solution of blue, and now I’m happy. Also in the nick of time with this experiment it seems, no more snow!

Fiber Friday next week will be spinning – I hope.

Snefarvning 2

Mit sidste snefarvningseksperiment gik også lidt i vasken, jeg huskede at binde feddet men lagde ikke mærke til at det blæste = ikke særlig smart når man skal strø pulver. Så der blev brugt rigeligt.

Af de to første fed var jeg ikke så glad for det ene, så det fik en tur i en blå gryde og det var meget bedre.

Jeg har besluttet at det nemmeste er at dampe garnet, så ikke farverne render sammen, jeg har ved andre lejligheder kunnet fiksere farven lynhurtigt ved at nedsænke i meget varmt vand, men det virkede ikke rigtig her.
