My socks are rocked. (Well, they're not knit yet -- but they will be dazzling Grin)

I received a fantastic package from Cheebz today, check it out:

2.5 yds of dyed summerweight fabric! Cheebz said the process involved starting with yellow fabric, pleated and stitched via murashi, then discharged with bleach, dyed in two baths of scarlet and then dark brown, sprayed again with brown, then twisted and painted with red and yellow, and finally sprayed with brown. (did you get all that?)

That is a section of it, folded over a chair - the color is a little brighter in real life.
Here is a closeup to show detail:


And then a viking-inspired hat in stamp discharged velvet. It fits perfectly, but I'm photographing it on the wig form because I'm not good at taking pictures of my own head Smiley



Thanks Cheebz! I love it!

Here is the shirt I made with the fabric Cheebz dyed:


It is from the Athena Blouse pattern from LaFred.  Thanks Cheebz!
