We have now completed four out of five of the Laines of the 1792 map of Brighthelmstone - leaving only this one, the West Laine, left to knit this year.
As you can see it's mostly green, the colour of the Kemp family who owned half of Brighton and a great deal of the surrounding downland.
The three coloured strips just outside the old town are today the Churchill Square shopping area, the car parks down to the Metropole Hotel on the seafront.
All of the above skeins were dyed with woad! For the first time this year, I tried dyeing with woad flowers - and I got yellow. When I overdyed with woad, I got a good strong green that I'm calling Brighton Green. The pink skein was what happened when I repeated the experiment... but after a while the same vat yielded yellow again - and two weeks later I'm still getting yellow.
