pumping the red

lemon float
lemon float

well, if murasaki shifts towards the reds if lemon is added, let's try it with chestnut water.it gives a red kick, but warning! do not expect the above as it  is poetic license.

some silk dyed in chestnut water. 
i feel terribly macrobiotic because i'm using seasonal products(^ _^)
i'm preparing the colors for a silk warp and it's going to be for a summer top. there's plenty of time, but as you know fashion works at least 6 months ahead of the calendar (-_o)

on to other  things. thanks to all the wonderful folks who replied to  last week's plea on jiggery. 

and last but not least the warp problems have been solved and i'm happily weaving again. 96 picks=5cms, roughly 2 inches. i'll be doing a lot of weaving!

  5. that is a beautiful colour. Now that I know what a pick is, I'm a bit awestruck by the fineness of your weaving.
