While they are busy scratching and pecking, I've been busy weaving, then dyeing mohair throws.
A lot of fringe to be tied............
First we soak the finished throw in warm water and Synthrapol.
Then we mix up some dye!!
I used both these containers......but I have to say that the canner was my favorite.
The dye always looks darker in the water.
So I opt for more dye, rather than less.
This one is lavender.
Then there is a lot rinsing, washing then drying.....by this time I was so busy, I wasn't much in the mood to take pictures.
No, honestly, I forgot.
But the results are astounding.
One cream, then: raspberry, paprika, lavender, sea breeze, evergreen, and caramel.
Can I just tell you that I froze my BUTT OFF with this little photo shoot?? It was brutally cold that day, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to take advantage of the incredible sunshine.
How do you like them???
