Boiled Cable

Getting back into routine at home: out came my dyepots. I've got an idea for a project and I think this felted cable jumper might do the trick. It started off a dullish mulberry colour. Yesterday I boiled it up with a big dollop of marine blue. I'm always amazed at how much dye a piece of felted wool will take. I rinsed it out last night. I wasn't convinced I had the colour right. This morning it will go back into the pot with as much magenta dye as it will take. I'll see how it looks after that and take the next step.

Meanwhile I've got a new crochet project going to keep me company with my morning cup of coffee. And I have some quilt projects to get started. Yep, I'm home!
