Hare Moon socks and a surprise:)
Hare Moon socks? Finished:)) Don't they look beautiful and spring like? Didn't Perran make a fabulous job of dyeing the yarn? Thank you Perran.
I also received a surprise in the mail via Vicky, Perran's mum. A dyeing kit for kool aid complete with everything you need. Except as Vicky reminded me I don't have a microwave(VBG) That will hopefully soon be remedied via freecycle if I can find a simple one just for dyeing.
BW, my dyes are Procion MX from kemtex. I don't normally make the liquid up until I am going to use it but I believe that as long as you don't put the soda ash in the dye keeps well as liquid especially if you can keep it in the fridge. I don't know which to use for wool etc as I haven't really gone further in to it. I must do as I do enjoy dyeing. I love the colour spectrum you have done. I would recommend Kemtex if you get into it properly.
