I am doing some more dyeing in preparations for weaving more pieces on this warp. Here is a pan of yellows in the process of "cooking."

some yellows

I'm rather fond of this picture. I like the wateriness of the colors. And I think this wateriness is intensified by the steam rising out of the jars and out of the pan itself. Click on the picture to enlarge it and you will see what I am talking about.

I am dyeing yellows because I have very little in the original dyed yarns. Here I am trying to get some variations, both in color and depth of shade. I am intrigued by what is happening to the jar on the far right. I added just a bit of violet to it to make the yellow just a little drab. It's hard to tell from the picture but it is probably the most potentially interesting of the colors.
