Coffee With My Walnuts Please

      No, I am not having dessert, just a bit of           
                          kitchen dying.
Coffee and Walnuts Shibori silk lining

Kitchen dying has been one of my activities this past year. Wanting to line a knitted scarf with silk, I decided to have my fun in the kitchen rather than downstairs in the dye lab.

The silk was from the bolt, so I gave it a good machine wash and dry to shrink it and get any sizing out. I had a few hard lessons in this department earlier this year.
