Happy Halloween!

"Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Cool it with a baboon's blood,
Then the charm is firm and good."

William Shakespeare, Macbeth

Sometimes natural dyeing does look like witchcraft. The dodgy looking liquid in the big jar is rusted water. The three smaller jars contain red wine, black tea, and hibiscus tea. The murky stuff in the bowl is walnut dye. I was playing around dyeing silk cocoons, results later in the week.
