Dyed in Lilac

Here is the dyed version of the scarf I posted Saturday.  The ends have been twisted and then the dyeing began.

I think this has real potential to become interesting work.  Here’s an up close of the fabric.

As I suspected the two yarns took the dye differently… now of course I’m thinking of doing different patterns in different yarns, doing different yarns together, resistant dye yarns, yarns that will soak up dye, painting sections… the process has made me think of the innumerable possibilities.
