This was the sum of this weekend's efforts. Not bad!
...or so I thought until I got to the studio today. Every single color matched EXCEPT the light yellow, which was the one that worried me, and the one I need the most!
Which one is the light yellow, you ask? Yes, that is exactly the problem. I was worried that the light yellow came out too much like medium yellow. It did.
Back into the dyepots.
At least I have my original skein at home with me now, to compare to my next attempt. I made a serious mistake by not bringing the original home with me. Funny how all the others matched their original skeins like little clones, but not the yellow.
File this one under "partial yarn dyeing mistakes."
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), a long-time meditator, a certified meditation teacher and coach, and focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
