I think I have found my newest hobby. Dyeing wool. All week I kept thinking about it again and I kept thinking maybe my mind was playing tricks on me and I really didn't have as much fun as I did earlier in the week. So I got out my pot and I took on packet of orange and one packet of strawberry Kool Aid and added a 1/4 of a teaspoon of tan dye to my dye pot. This is the color I got, the picture doesn't do it justice, it is this creamy orange color.
This is my tan color, the rug I am using has a tan background so I needed more tan than I had so I made this color. This is so much fun to know what color I want in my head and to mix until I see it. I feel like a bird let out of a cage.
We are having a dust storm today, with maybe rain tomorrow. I thought I would tell you than no, the pictures I posted yesterday were last years pictures. Thankfully we don't have any trees blooming yet. The wind today would have blown them all away.
I just thought I would share my wool. I feel like I am on my way to finally being a real (Rug) Hooker.
