Words are escaping me today. Making an indigo vat for the first time and seeing, almost feeling, that it was ready to dye was so exciting...just, sigh.
It was such a speedy process. I had a sort-of plan beforehand - shades I wanted to try and get, a couple of over dyes and resist experiments. It just all happened so quickly and before I knew it there was a rack full of yarn. I moved it inside when the rain came, and had to keep going to back to the laundry room to peek at it.
I used a little kit alongside Kristine Vejar's creativebug class which I can highly recommend. I imagined it to be a complicated process but it really wasn't, and was a good way to learn this stage of the process while I wait for my own fresh dyestuff to grow. (Woad is growing well, indigo is a dream for next year...)
