Dye update update...

Well, the pine/cedar dyebath is just short of boiling now with 1 and 1/2 cups vinegar added... the amount was arbitrary on my part. I picked up some of the wool carefully with a wooden spoon and let the liquid run out and it seems significantly darker than it was earlier when I did the same. Whether this is wishful thinking, because of the vinegar, or just the added soaking time in what by now must be a more concentrated solution, I don't know. But it's a nicer color than it was before, so I think we're headed in the right direction.
