A Dyeing Sort of Afternoon

I went jogging this morning.  A long run: 7.25 miles.  And yes, I count those .25 miles.  I had big plans to do yard work today but my legs sent me a memo that they needed to rest so I decided not to work in the yard nor lounge around either but get to work dyeing some silk scarves instead.
The Shibori Zebra scarves are done but the extra long plain ones are meant for greater things.  I will be covering them with wool to make some poppy nuno scarves.  I love dyeing fabric.  It is immediate and satisfying but with a twist of surprise in how things will look.  I just received a big shipment of silk so I will be dyeing, dyeing, dyeing, in the next couple of weeks!
