Busy days; created a Galaxy !

Finding time to hook can be difficult when I'm dyeing each day.
Here is Galaxy with Majic Carpet Dyes. It's a spot dye.
It took 1 hr 30 mins.. @ 350 ˚ F to process these.
Gather up 1/2 yd wet wool in peaks and valleys, add 1/8th tsp. citric acid to each dye solution, pour in stripes or spots in a checkerboard pattern. Don’t mess around too much with the wool after you pour the dye on so you can get the stars in the dark sky effect.

1/2 tsp. Blue Violet
1/2 tsp. Turquoise
1/2 tsp. Bottle Green
1/2 tsp. Brilliant Green
1/2 tsp. Red Violet
1/2 tsp. Black
