Since Cape May is a mere 39 days away and no other design is planned except Wee Folk so figured that I'd better get myself ready to hook that baby and over dye some background wool.
I have previously used the wonderful recipe from Beautiful Wool called High Meadow Green with great success and use it up fast so need more. There is still maybe half a yard of previously dyed wool from that recipe but this time I wanted to add a smidgen more of the Chartreuse to have some variation since it will be used for not only the background but in the scallops or other places within the rug ~ so it will be good to have different values of the same color combination.
This is a peek at some of the wool that is being dyed. It contains about 4 or 5 different wools, some light some dark and that was planned of course. This recipe turns out really great with wool that has some grey in it. But also wanted some lighter wool textures for the background and flat to mix in with the background for maybe an outline of something close in value with the other.
Here is a picture of some of the wool and think you can figure out which was in the pot of 3 T and 4 T.
Thanks for visiting a spell and welcome to AUGUST, before you know it we'll be wearing jackets.
