sometimes you hurt the ones you love

Here's a closeup of one of the panels on the rack. My apologies to anyone looking for t-pins in the Philadelphia area this weekend--I bought them all.

I (heart) indigo.

I used J.N. Liles' recipe and instructions in The Art and Craft of Natural Dyeing to dye the panels of the second annual Waldorf School of Philadelphia Holiday Fair raffle afghan. The actual color is pretty much the middle shade (the photos above are all the same shot differently interpreted by my limited command of the even more limited photoshopping features of iPhoto). I recommend Liles' book for indigo dyeing. Even someone totally new to dyeing could get great results the first time using his instructions. The natural indigo powder and assists I used came from Hill Creek Fiber Studio.

and a bonnet I knit up remembering the basics of the LMKG pattern from which I'd made this one.
