pancakes to be et!) I've already found the testing to be helpful in my dyeing, so I'm really glad that I'm doing it. It would be wonderful to take Carol Soderlund's dyeing class at Nancy Crow's Timber Barn, but as much as I adore Carol and taking classes at the Barn, that just isn't going to happen in this lifetime. So I will struggle along on my own and 'do it my way'! Oh, almost forgot: Elizabeth B commented that she'd like to hear more about my comparisons of the dyes from Pro Chem and Dharma. Well, I thought that I had made a 'final decision' this afternoon after sampling the last 23 of my Procion MX dyes. It really seemed that the Pro Chem dyes mixed more easily, and that the Dharma powders were perhaps a bit finer, but 'clumped' together more when mixing, thus taking longer to get them into solution. (Pardon my scientific terminology here!) However, all that said, when I mixed up a couple of 'extras' at the end, for further study: Pro Chem's Burnt Orange and Fuchsia, they were equally as ornery as those from Dharma! So my conclusion is that I have not come to any conclusion! Sorry!!!!
I'm not sure why it was so easy for me to upload my first scarf tying video, and why my second attempt (last night) was so difficult, but hopefully this third attempt will work like a charm. So, without further ado, here's Jennifer demoing (is that a word????) a great scarf 'tying' technique using a little bangle bracelet:
