Ladies in Blue

Even grownups, grandmotherlys type all, love to play in water and play with colour.   The Calgary Guild of mudpie makers got together for a dye day.  It's more fun than mudpies.

The blue gloves are specially for dyeing, they are quite heat resistant.  I've fished a skein out of boiling water,  very, very quickly.

The blue fibre is mine, and the lady sharing the table was dyeing sock yarn.  She got a lovely grey pink.

Purple dye over blue, using the pour and puddle method.

Not bad results, thanks to Ruth B. expert help.
