What a day. Dyeing, dyeing, and more dyeing. And in between the dye sessions, dealing with life's other surprises. I did get six skeins done--six different colors--but can't show them until they are dry, probably by tomorrow.
Here's about all I can show now. It's one of the greens which had just come out of the oven and was momentarily too hot to handle. You can see the soapy rinse that I'd prepared just above it.
Sopping wet, this doesn't look like much. But I think it's the exact color I wanted and can't wait to see what shade it is when it's completely dry (wet wool is darker than dry wool).
Tomorrow I think I'll be experimenting less and working more on dyeing the background for the rug, though a lot depends on what I decide about colors I got today.
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), long-time meditator and coach, focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
NEXT INTRO TO ZENTANGLE CLASS:
No immediate group classes scheduled (I'm always open to hearing about a good venue in the Cambridge-Somerville area). I am always happy to teach 1-1 and/or in a small group in your home.
Come and amaze yourself!
