Re-Dye, Re-Design and Re-Take

Worked on these three hats today and I'm tired. On the first hat, it needed a continuity of color, so I threw it in the dye pot with purples and hot pinks. Love the effect!

The green hat needed something special done with it. I also over dyed this one. It was an almost olive green, but more green than olive. I decided to over dye it with blue-green and black. It turned out much better than I had hoped for, actually. Thank you Chris White, who gave me some wonderful tips on color play.

The other hat is being sent off and I'd not taken a photo of it so I thought I'd better get that done before it went to it's new home.

All in all, a very good day and now it is raining. There is nothing like an evening rain to help me relax and rejoice!

Do you think that Irish - German heritage is showing through in my work. My Irish Grandmothers would be thrilled! They are also the ones who were shepherdess. Did I ever tell you that my first pet was a lamb. I was four and don't recall, but my folks have told me that. How cool is it that I now work in wool. I think early exposure to wonderful things does matter a bunch!
Hugs to you,

The hat with the little flowers on it sold to a young woman at the show in Green Castle Indiana. I saw her again in Wooster Ohio and she bought yet another hat of mine. She is so much a hat girl!
