Et STUDIE af BRUSKBOLDE

Bruskbolde indeholder et gul-brunt farvestof, men også en irriterende masse af bittesmå, sorte sporer. Jeg bestemte mig for at finde ud af, om sporerne indeholder nogen farve, eller om de bare kan smides ud. ~ Forrige år farvede jeg en masse garn med bruskbolde. Det fik en dejlig gulbrun farve, men det var simpelthen fyldt […]

En gammel brunporesvamp

Brunporesvampen, en af de rigtig gode farvesvampe i den danske natur,  gror på dødt træ, eller parasitisk på levende træers rødder. Den gror samme sted år efter år, og sætter nye fruglegemer hvert år, så man finder tit indtørrede svampe fra året før ved siden af de friske eksemplarer, der er i gang med at […]

Nu har vi sagt farvel til 2015 og goddag 2016, men jeg kan vist godt lige nå at vise jer de svampefarver, som 2015-høsten bragte. Efteråret er og bliver min yndlingsårstid.

This is what I wrote back then Parietin, Wikipedia informs […]

Beige Again (Walnut Shells)

I lived in Grenoble for 2 years, and everybody there is always talking about walnuts. The region is famous for its walnuts – noix de Grenoble. But I have to admit that I didn’t actually see any nuts growing, nor did I eat very many of them while I lived there… So one day here […]

Gradient Hat

I’m in hat knitting mode right now! As soon as this hat was finished, I had the next one on the needles. The pattern, a Danish one called “hue 1” (that just means hat 1, the book has more than one hat) really makes my brain go berserk with color scheme after color scheme. I’ve […]

Welcome!

I have long been fascinated with the colors that one can achieve using the dyes that nature provides. There is an endless experimentation that can be tried, and to chronicle my many experiments, I’ve decided to start writing about it here. That will also allow myself to keep track! Over the summer and fall of […]
