step 2

Wrap up your package and pop it back into the dye pot for more colour. Or in my case a bit too much colour. Dark that is. I wrapped the whole thing in some prefelt to try to protect the outer layer from becoming too dark. The prefelt was a bit too spongy and made it harder to tie the thing tight enough. Result was the dye from the bath penetrated too many layers and I lost the lovely variation I was trying to preserve. Should have stuck to my usual method. Salutatory lesson received. Still, it is not a complete disaster, looks cute on.
