I feel obliged to share the rest of my wares and I hope to shoot the lot this weekend on the blackberry if it is sunny. I do intend to buy a new camera but I have my heart set on a Nikon digital SLR, so am saving pennies now for this purchase, so meanwhile the blackberry it is.
Anyway yesterday i took advantage of no rainfall and decided as well as writing the introduction to my dissertation, I'd dye a cardigan. I basically stained my lovely white cardigan with sun screen lotion on the inside of the sleeves. After a few removal tricks I admitted defeat and put plan B in to operation. Luckily I had a hand dye sachet of Dylon's tulip red and converted the washing up bowl into my dye receptacle. The instructions are easy to follow and my only top tips would be make sure your rubber gloves aren't leaking - I have a slightly reddish right hand currently, and do stir as instructed during the dying period - this ensures an even distribution of dye on the garment. You don't need to stir very much if you are tie dying.
