I’ve been having a great time this summer trying something new…
A group of my knitting friends and I got together for a whole day of colorful fun. Lots of laughs and lots of blue fingers later we came away with a new appreciation for hand dyers! I also learned I hate wearing gloves 😉
We had a beautiful day, and had everything our little yarnie hearts could ask for.
I ordered some special wool from knitpicks just for dyeing. I tried a few ways, including knitting blanks on a knitting machine, hand painting, kettle dyeing and microwaving.
I can’t decide my favourite. The watermelon socks…
Or the rainbow socks
Or course, I also fell in love with this tonal teal that was pure accident
And this dark denim which was an ugly purple over dyed with a dark royal blue
Let’s just say I’ve been bitten by the dye bug, lol!
