Scarves with Prints


One of the rules I made for November's Ring Your Neck Challenge is that sewing is optional.
Another rule is that you must try something new.
So if you aren't going to sew, let me suggest trying some fun dying and printing techniques:

This fine wool scarf was dip-dyed
in indigo--a lovely effect.

"about upstate: 
kalen and astrid design garments utilizing their 
own take on shibori* and dip dyeing. 
each item is hand dyed and one of a kind."

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! No-reply commentors don't get to read my witty replies, and that's just sad.
