There are a couple of shades I would still like to try……..
But I’m not going to.
The whitish areas on some of the samples are areas that the dye didn’t reach. These were places I had a tie and had tied it a bit too tight. This is the kind of thing I watch carefully to avoid when I do the final dyeing; but for the samples, it doesn’t really matter.
There is one real mistake, a mistake which shows me that I missed an initial sampling that should have been done. The orange on the right card is supposed to be red……….. I didn’t sample it because the recipe I used was from another sample which had turned out a beautifully brilliant scarlet….. Sigh……..
What I ought to do is to do the samples on that card all over again. Maybe I’ll just use plain old SAB Scarlet instead of a recipe concoction.
I’ll sleep on it. For the whole weekend. I mean three nights! Just in case anyone thinks I might be going into hibernation…..
