You've Got to Be Kidding Part 2

Since I was in the process of washing wool when the bobbin popping tragedy occurred, I decided I may as well dye more locks and get on with it instead of boo-hooing all afternoon.

Once again I worked from the sink.

The clean locks were soaked in a vinegar solution before I dunked them into the jars.

The locks have be rolled around carefully in the dye of they will fall apart and become a tangled mess.

These are the jars I used last summer to solar dye but in March the sun isn't going to do it. I gave some of them a spin the microwave.

The other half got a steam bath in the old crab pot.

I know that they are not going to match the originals but they'll just have to do.
