Since Saturday

Since Saturday, I have dyed a lot of wool.  I did not keep track of the amount (I dyed 20 yards just on Tuesday) but I did, of sorts, keep track of the different colors I used to dye.


At first, the used colors just got left out on the work table after the dye session was over.  I know, it is hard to believe that I don’t always end each dye session with a meticulous clean up & put up period but, on occasion  I do not and, on Saturday, did not.

On Sunday evening, when I dyed a little more, I also left those dye colors out.  Monday and Tuesday saw big marathon dyeing sessions and, by that time, it was sort of fun to see which colors I used and which ones I did not.  Some of these colors were used as is and many of the others were components of dye recipes I made.  While a very few colors were used more than once, I tried to avoid multiple uses of colors if I could just to see if I could do it.  As it was, I used 37 of the 82 Pro Chem colors I have on hand.  This was rather interesting to me as it, basically, supports my suggestion in the book that there are about 30 Pro Chem colors that one must have.
