Number one. always check that your hank that you are dying is correctly tied otherwise you will end up with the mess I had all over the kitchen table this afternoon.
Number 2 Kemtex Slate isn't grey in fact its a veru nice denim blue but not quite what I was looking for.
Lesson over other than a couple of mistakes managed to dye around half a kilo of yarn and it is all dried, weighed and labelled.
Unfortunately we did have an unwanted visitor this afternoon, a fox sunbathing in the middle of the lawn, I feel another sleepless night ahead, also I have a bunny that might be about to produce little bunnies (definitely no sleep). Raeburn still alight though.
