Fabric dyes and knitting yarns

As soon as I posted about the Tallinn trip I had some errands to run in town and of course I couldn't resist going to one or two crafts shops... :) I bought some fabric dyes and knitting yarn. I have no idea what I am going to knit from this yarn, its called Karuselli (carousel) and its 100% acrylic. It has just so beautiful autumn colour.

I have decided to try dyeing some of my own stitching fabrics and bought brown, green and red pigments and I don't know what this emulsion is called in english but you mix the pigment to the emulsion and spray it on the fabric. I also bought two tote bags so I can practise first before I ruin my stitching fabric. :D
