Dyer At The Stove/Shibori

Here I am last night rectifying so blue I needed today.
It's never too late to dye!
Spot dyeing a safety pin shibori brick is a great way to vivify boring wool. I do different colours on each side and make several letters S instead of spots to create this look over already dyed wool.
These can act just like a plaid when hooked.

When Thomas Edison worked late into the night on the electric light, he had to do it by gas lamp or candle. I'm sure it made the work seem that much more urgent.
