Some Color

Recently a friend gave me an old woolen blanket.
This is too thick to use in hooking, but I thought I might dye it some bright colors and use it in a standing wool rug.  I've done some quillies and took a shirred rug class at Old Sturbridge Village with Rose Ann Hunter, but I've never incorporated the standing wool into a rug.
I dyed the wool with Prochem and Cushing's Perfection dyes: purple #819, magenta #338, spiced pumpkin #230, brick #255, red #366, and Egyptian red.
Let's see what I can make with them.
