Finally got round to dying my crochet kimono and am so happy with the results! Now I'll be honest, I couldn't be bothered to wash it first because it's new and I just wanted it done as soon as possible, so I dyed it from dry! And also I couldn't find any rubber gloves so I just used a wooden spoon instead. Said spoon is now black but it was right at the back of the drawer and it never got used! I did use two packets of dye on this since it weighed around 300g and one packet is supposed to be enough for 250g, and I wanted to make sure it was black! All the other measurements stayed the same though. I didn't even stir that long either, just submerged the fabric so it was fully covered and did it by eye. Left it in the bowl for an extra hour too just to make sure it would be fully black! So relieved it worked, the next plan is to do it again with one of these skirts as my local store never stocked the black version! What do you think?
PS. Obvious nod to the recent news about Amy Winehouse in the post title. Very sad, although inevitable news. Lots of bad stuff going on at the moment, all in all not a great year!
