inspiration - tie dye

i really do not make good use of this blog. for my own purposes i mean, since i'm the one of the only two who reads it (thanks mom!). i bookmark and track ideas i like and inspiration, and while i'm not on the internet as intensely as some of the good bloggers, i could be using this space to lay out ideas and inspiration.

i'm going to blame a little bit on blogspot and my ineptness (?) at finding a likeable layout.

i've been intrigued by the rebirth of tie-dye in a modern way. some of the bloggers i follow have taken a class in nyc that i would love to take. while i don't love it all, some of it i think is great, and the seashells above that i found in newport last weekend have a design i'd love to recreate with tie dye, with navy and cream or black and cream.

tank top dyed by Jen from the haystack needle

scarf dyed by Jenny from wikstenmade. so excited that i just purchased this pattern from wiksten that i can't wait to use! (it's the only wiksten item i can afford and another class i wish i could take).

a post of finished handwarmers should have been up here a week ago, but another task i'm working on is taking better pictures (something else i should use the blog for in terms of inspiration). made harder by trying to take pictures of my hands myself.

soon enough.
