Anyway, for the un-drawn new project I am planning to dye some wool for it. Although I have loads of primitive black some is new textured wool and would prefer the wool to have the look of some fading, washed out look. So am hoping to end up with some mottled blotchy antique black wool for this next project.
These are a few of the wool pieces I picked out which measures about half a yard in total. In reading Tonya's comments she said she used 1/4 yard for the recipes so I'll be doubling the recipe. But I'll mention all of this again on the next post tomorrow.
Mad Hen Prims) to over dye the wool. Am thinking of using her recipe for a color she calls Evening Shade. But hey, you know I'm capable of taking a hard right hand turn or changing my mind in a flash.
For her darks Tonya said she dyed all on camel wool. But wanting a variation thought I'd throw in some other wool. More than likely that yellow will have a greenish tint to it but that's okay as that is not my favorite piece of wool to hook as is anyway.
Stay tuned tomorrow to see how my wool turns out. It is always a surprise because color of starter wool used, whether a drought or rainy season makes a difference, as well as whether it be well water or city water. Oh, and let's not forget the part of the country we are living ~ that also determines the end color.
Have a fantastic evening. There's certainly a chill in the air compared to what we've been used to here in Delaware. Winter is here for sure.
