I feel guilty and play with my wool to marry some blues. I started with a piece of bright blue and added some other colors.

The B&A picture the beige piece. The other pieces started as white. The blue were still too dark so I simmered the pieces again and some of the dye was removed and more clean water was added with soap and simmered again.
The turquoise wool was simmered and some dye removed and the some yellow dye was added and it became this very bright green. I'll have to tone it down with onion skins but for now it is in my basket.
So after all that hard work I thought that a casual bowl of home made turkey soup with lots of vegetables and some crackers would satisfy me. I added a turkey sandwich and a cup of King Cole tea to complete the meal.
