Our collection of woollen singlets were looking a little worse for wear (two boys, and a washing machine that is less than gentle, will do that!) so I had a go at dyeing them over the weekend.
I remember now why it is that I don't dye things very often - you never can really predict what colour things will end up! The green is greener than it looks in these photos, but is still far more 'khaki' than 'parakeet' and the blue has a definite hint of purple..
I'm not complaining though. Not at all. They look a lot better than the well-used cream colour that they were, and soon they will be layered on delicious newborn skin where nothing can look bad!
Do you dye things often? Is there a trick I don't know about, to getting the colour even and more predictable? Or is that all part of the beauty of it?
