Getting ... less ... of it done...
Didn't feel that good today. I washed the second half of the lamb fleece, dyed a half-pound of mixed fiber, and washed out the purple bamboo, but not too much beyond that.
The purple didn't stay as purple as I had intended. It's still very beautiful, but I need to learn to get good, solid, consistent intense color. I have measured out four new skeins of bamboo, and I am going to try the following:
More soda ash, because I've only been using the minimum.
All of these will only have half the fiber, so that will be one more variable. In a couple of days I'll know more........
