Secret Santa update and Dyeing

One for my Secret Santa, progress on the Regia Bamboo Jaywalker. This is lovely wool to knit with and a ball just makes 1 sock, so little wastage.
This afternoon I am trying out Acid dyeing, wasn't very successful with Kool-Aid at least for my bright tastes. In my mind I am going to do a delicate duck egg blue with Chocolate Brown so hold this thought in your mind for when you see the black yarn that may result. I am no artist, once in art at senior school I was unable to replicate the previous weeks colour so I just painted the whole sheet black. Doesn't bode well! On the plus side the sun is out.
