(sorry for the bad quality. just quickly snapped with my phone...)
one of my goals for 2015 was to get started with dyeing yarn naturally by myself, using plant materials i find or have around the house. it is absolutely refreshing to get started on a set goal as early as in january.
i had this moment on friday morning when i just started peeling onions and setting up a dye bath with them. some leftover baby merino wool was used (along with a tiny bit of grey lett lopi yarn). i cannot emphasize enough how very pleased i am with the result!
now i am on the lookout for more dyeing options, plants and flowers i might grow in the garden that work well for dyeing. and i need to get undyed yarn, of course! always an excuse for yarn shopping ;-) i think my next batch will be dyed with beets...
have a good start to your week!
