finally finished the scarf

and just in time for the party. i made it wider than the pattern called for. hubby thinks its not long enough. i had to explain to him that it is a summer scarf and it is not meant to keep you warm.

i got some recycled linen off ebay… i tried to dye it but it didn’t take. come to find out it won’t take with acid dyes but with Procion MX and soda ash it will… so i ordered that this morning and hopefully it won’t take all damn year to get it like it did the last time i ordered it from this one company… the only reason i ordered from them again is because the lowered their prices a lot and now they are cheaper. so i had to go with the cheaper one although i think they would have been the same because of shippin. but whatever. i got some other colors for my jacket too.

  1. Look at that little mama with her glamous face expression! hahah DIVA

  2. all veggie fibers need to be dyed with the procion dyes…although i have read that you can use soda ash and salt with acid dyes and they will work, although the colors won’t be as bright. also, you could use RIT dyes or something like that. joann’s fabric and craft stores often carry procion. also, if a yarn has been treated sometimes it will resist dyeing. i learned this the hard way.

  3. now you tell me!!! i should have emailed and asked you in the first place!!!
