Another dye try...
























Turmeric (nice, just a bit too yellow for my taste...)













Turmeric + tea batik (fun, but rather retro...)













Pine cones (a light, but very pleasant beige)...

I assume you alreadyknow India Flint - her work in eco dying?

She has a blog called "all those who wander are not lost"

She once knitted me soemthing on a plane using only plastic teaspoons becasue they wont let you knit on a plane.

Fun! I won't be able to do much solar dyeing now I think so I'm going to try red cabbage on the stove top this weekend. Maybe some marigolds too.

I particularly like that "batik"--i wonder if curry would do the same.

dye trying, a new term, like tie dyeing. very nice yellows actually.

I like the yellow too! I am fond
of using instant coffee for a dye.
It gives such a nice "aged" look to
muslin. very nice.
