Here it is, in all its orange glory…

  

It doesn’t look too bad (does it?), it just doesn’t look like I thought it would.  Maybe I just need to put it in a cupboard for a while and get it out later when I have mastered making chocolate ice cream brown and the orange isn’t bugging me?

I dyed some more fibre today – same green and pink dye solution (using it up) and the last of the purple from the previous dyeing session.  150g of superwash merino/tencel and a silk hankie (never spun one of those before – if you have any advice, do leave me a comment).  More pictures tomorrow when it’s all dry.
