It is both Monday and February, and I’m not entirely certain how I feel about either of those things. Neither is Morgan (still the number one Ferocious Monster [Yes, I mention that periodically. Sorry if you are bored, but I find it a fascinating example of the quirkiness of search engine results.]).
But here, have some cheery colors. I spent some time yesterday taking photos of dyed yarn under different conditions and with different camera settings. The silk and the wool are posed together here, though I no longer have all the silks in the complete color wheel. They were dyed with identical procedures and identical proportions of chemicals by weight.
Thank you all for the links to museum databases. I’ll get them added to the list soon. There are so many great things online; it’s very exciting.
