although it may appear that i'm living a "slow" life (working from home, spinning and knitting for a living), everything i do, i do fast. i eat fast, i read fast, i house clean fast, i walk fast. i spin fast, i knit fast and i dye fast. so on my new "path" i am putting alot of conscious effort into slowing down. i've been using natural dyes and not getting bright colours. yesterday i followed the instructions. i let this "lac" dye simmer for a long time and then i let my fibre soak for a long time. and look what i got for taking my time!
