Dyeing Projects

Rit has made a new color chart system with tons of color recipes to choose from, and I have a pile of things waiting to be dyed.
Most of my clothes are black, when I do buy things with color I prefer jewel/earth tones, but have a hard time finding those colors, so dying is a great option. It's always a bit of a gamble, and sometimes things have to be dyed more than once to get just the right shade, but it's fun to experiment.
Some time I would like to try some natural dyes like onion skins and the like (I have used tea) but for today it will be Rit.
Do you ever dye? What do you use?

I just wish the colors had names and not numbers....maybe I'll name them myself.
Time to go break out the dye tub. I'll let you know how it goes.
