How's this for dramatic???
Here are a couple shawls - I was going for the ombre effect.
Love these rich colors
This looks weird in the photo but it's really pretty in person - nice autumn tones
I love the dramatic color change here
And here's that Blue Wisteria and Amethyst shawl again - love it
Next up was ice dyeing - we've never done it before so it was a learning experience
Pile the ice on high
Sprinkle the dye powder on top. This is one of mine and I put too much dye powder
This is what they looked like the next morning after the ice all melted
I've always been under the impression that the fiber reactive dyes are best used in 70 degree temps or warmer, while dyeing and while batching. So, how does ice dyeing work then??? Does anyone know? And apparently it can be done in the snow too.
On a different subject - the van - we heard back from Dodge today and they're sending us a check for $500 of the $750 alternator repair - whoo hoo. Our position that it should have never happened to a vehicle less than 3 years old, 3000 miles out of warranty was justified.
