This is my first time actually posting pictures of a project!  I hope you like it.

I've been experimenting with natural dying lately, and this is my first attempt at shibori (a fancy word for japanese tie-dye like techniques).

To do it I ran gathering stitches across the width of the scarf, pulled them all tight (an unexpectedly tedious process!), then dyed it in a vat of madder.  The dye solution doesn't soak in where the stitches are.  The colour is a bit weaker than I would like, but I'm still happy with it!

Oh, the scarf is silk.

that's a really interesting process.
i love that where it isn't dyed, it still looks like tiny stitches.
