a dye day

one dyebath, many shades

dyeing slips

One jar of RIT dark green dye can produce so many different effects.
Alice and I had a lovely time finding things to toss in the dye pot. I used the last of my white Targhee roving to exhaust the bath (dove gray!), then I sprinkled lemonade Kool Aid powder directly onto the roving in spots (chartreuse!) I had a hard time getting the green to come through in the photos.

For dinner I made my own dashi for the gyudon. Bonito flakes, some dulse, and dried shiitake and bolete mushrooms. Yum!

Not a bad day for one that started extremely late and mildly hungover.
