I desperately wanted to get some stuff off my to-do list, so the past two days have been spent finishing Mark's bow sock and acquiring fabric for garb. Mark's bow sock is done, yay, and I learned some stuff from making mine that I applied to his, which was good. We picked up fabric for under-and over-kosode for each of us, plus hakama for him. (I'm doing long kosode for now, and will make hakama for myself when I have more time.) Today was spent laundering and dyeing the fabrics. I am grateful [personal profile] keshwyn hooked me up with Procion dyes and dyeing knowledge while she was here at one point, because that made this much easier.

So his hakama fabric is a soft reddish-purplish brown (the dye is officially "rose brown") and my kosode fabric is now a deep forest green (forest green dye plus a scoop of midnight blue). We'll see how they turn out. I didn't want to start cutting the under-kosode until I was *done* with the dyes. So maybe I will get an under-kosode done tomorrow. At least I have the fabric and have finished the bow sock, and yeah. It's been a nice break from brain-melty work.
