Dying silk

I think if you did not know me, or my need to feel the silk while dying you might think I am a lunatic with blue and green hands.  I know…wear gloves…but there is something that takes the silk dying to a different place when that subtle touch, or feel is masked by gloves.

So here I am with 6 new scarves in various stages of drying or having resist added.  Each scarf amazes me with the dye patterning, the way the dye blends, breaks.  While I can control a lot, there is an unpredictability that I love.

Here are a few photos:
