Dyed and Gone to Cara
I can't make it to the Spin-Out (unfortunately, DD expects me to attend her Bat Mitzvah that day) but I promised Cara I’d donate some hand-dyed roving so I broke out the dyepot to create the perfect colorway for the event.
And, in case you were wondering what it will look like spun up, I just might have kept a little for myself:
Not content to stop at roving, I added some yarn to the dyepot. On the top is a 100% merino superwash yarn and the bottom is a wool/nylon sock yarn. I find it so interesting that I got such different results using the exact same concentration of dye.
And, what's this??
Who knew you could use your kitchen for something other than dyeing fiber.
Who's linking here?
