Indigo!

Finally. Though I did a pretty shoddy job dyeing my paper samples today, at least the silk came out nicely. This is a silk scarf and cotton pouches in vinegar water.

The green one is indigo, then dyed with cassia seeds. I went to the bookstore afterwards and was finally able to use the computers on my own to search for an art history text but it wasn't there. Then I looked at Chinese character books and almost got a couple but then realized that if I can't even keep up on my workload now, no need to add things that I will just not do.

One more dyeing lesson tomorrow, and then I'm going to take the week off from colors since come Monday, I will have less than two weeks before I fly to the big island to present and do more research.
