I finally got a couple of books (Christmas gifts) to get going with some natural dyeing.
I cracked open this first one a few nights ago. I've just been reading a little at a time since I certainly don't have the sort of time I did in college to read. So far it's very informative. I'm starting slow with this process because I really need to be careful working with these materials since I have a 5-year-old in the house. Really, I'm only going to be working with the safest of the safe and this book was recommended to me as a good one for such.
This next book is very exciting because, for example, keeping powdered copper and iron around makes me nervous with a young child in the house...so it's nice to know that I can make the dyes in copper pots or cast iron pots instead...much safer! I haven't done anything but flip through this book so far, but I can't wait to sink my teeth into it.
If you have a favorite natural dyeing book, please let me know...I'd love to get some more books on my wish list. Now...back to thinking about cooking dinner...it's going to have to be something quick since it's already past 6:00....
