I also dyed three more silk shawls. I dye three so I can take them to the Bead & Button show and give away two of them to my sister and Carol, her business partner, who we all consider a sister. Between the 2015 retreat and the 2016 retreat I had picked up a book on Shiburi dyeing, so I had a technique in mind before I got there. I brought along a dowel to wrap my shawls around after I folded them.
The first shawl I pleated length-wise, ironing between each pleat. That took a long time to do, and I realized I wouldn't have enough time to do that with the other two shawls.
