Wool Dyeing

the oxygen tubing is long around here

so I can slowly dye wool

the colors are close to true

just a little darker in person

most recipes from

Beautiful Wool by Laurice Heath

turns out it's available at the 

I Love Rug Hooking Website

 some of these were overdyed again the next day
the top three are now a darker
primitive green


I'll be off work until at least December 1st
my breathing has improved
still attached to the oxygen though

With my job 
I am required to return with no limitations
I need to be mobile
to walk from one end of the hospital to the other at times
(it's not that big of a hospital but when you can't breathe
especially while wearing an N95 mask...)

I need to push heavy equipment, to move patients
and stand in surgery for hours

This is one of the reasons I push myself
a little

I feel much better than I did 2 weeks ago
if all goes well in 2 more weeks I can return

Thank goodness for curbside pick up at the grocery store

Wishing you a beautiful day!

I love the Beautiful Wool dye book and have used it quite a lot. Seeing your wool makes me want to pull out my dye pots.

Glad you are recovering well and spirits up.
