An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

Yellow vs Yellow
I didn't want my tortoise socks too be too neon, so I spun some more wool and dyed a paler yellow. It's actually easier to dye a saturated colour, the wool absorbs as much as possible and it will probably be even. It's more difficult to get an even dye with less dye powder. I put the skein dry into cold water and slowly raised the temperature in the microwave, and it seemed to do the trick.
