Tansy Yellow-My first naturally hand dyed yarn.

So I got up later than usual(9am), ate a good breakfast-the bacon and egg type, and went outside to set up for yarn dying.  I mordanted the yarn while cooking the tansy.  Then once that was done I rinsed the yarn and took the flowers out. And put the yarn in to the dye pot.   I now have two beautiful golden yellow skeins of yarn.  This has taught me to watch your burner because the flame might go out if winds blowing enough and that I need more pots because how I did everything today with only two was quite interesting.
