Mo' Snow, Mo' Snow Dyeing

I took advantage of the fresh snow dump of snow last week to have another go at snow dyeing. I used the same process as last time, but this time I used the cool dyes - Sun Yellow 108, Mixing Red 305, and Basic Blue 400. I used the same process as last time, but dyed fabrics in yellow, green (1/2 tsp yellow and 1/2 tsp blue), blue, purple (1/2 tsp blue and 1/2 tsp red), and a ringed version using yellow, blue and purple.

I love how the greens, blues and purples turned out. Einh on the yellow and multicolour. I can't help but relate Forrest Gump's 'box of chocolates' quote to snow dyeing -- you never know what you're going to get!

Hope you are having a great day!
