Olive, Rosemary, and Rust

I've been experimenting with dyeing different colors - I didn't take pictures of the seperate colors, they were pretty much what I wanted. Now that it's being spun and balled up it looks a bit different - I'm waiting to see how it looks knit up.

The natural color is dyed with rosemary - just curious how that would work, since I have that in my garden. It did come out nicely - just a bit darker than pre-dyed. The olive and rust were dyed with wiltons and citric acid - all in the microwave, dyed and then carded.
