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

I hope I have enough contrast between the colours for my beret and scarf. I spun another three skeins after these ones and then pondered how many skeins to dye of each colour. I used half a skein of the light colour in my original sample, so I figured 2 skeins should cover it. I dyed the rest dark. The peach dyeing is even, but I forgot to throw out the water with vinegar in it before I dyed the dark wool, so it's a bit uneven. I'll choose the more uneven skeins for the beret and the better ones for the scarf.
