I just started dyeing a month ago. I dye silk fabric and wool to support my Nuno felting habit.
I like color themes because I have a hard time not just doing colors I love.
Some inspirations
Skies (not just blue, but sunsets, sunrise, stormy, etc) I made a wonderful wool roving in a sunrise orange, pink, purple, and blue...
animals (tabby cat, okapi, cheetah)
Stones (think malachite, jasper, turquoises )
Some methods that might be interesting to try if you haven't are
solar dyeing (saw that in a book recently) Microwave dyeing (kool aids are safe, I have a special dye only microwave )
Okay thats what I got..
I'm stoked about theme dyeing
Cool!

I don't think this is happening anymore, gypsyharte  Undecided

Although I don't dye roving, which seems to be the popular thing to do in this board, I do love to dye and would enjoy a dye-along...if this ever gets going again, I'd love to participate!

Hey Ladies!  We are definitely going to star this back up again!  Just give me a bit to finish getting my feet wet as a mod, and we'll dive back into the dye pot again!
