This is obviously a dyeing summer. The online WS&D Guild has a workshop "natural Dyeing for a painter's palette". Obviously something I should take part in. So far I've done mordanting (with more alum than I usually use), and dyeing reds (cochineal, madder) last week, and yellows (onion skins, weld) this week. Unfortunately I let the madder boil when I didn't intend to, and it has come out rather orange. The weld is coming out a bit pale I fear. But it's interesting to do dyeing where you make a dyebath first, removing the dyestuff, then adding the yarn after that - and with a bit more calculation than my usual bucket chemistry
