Ok, maybe I’m a bit crafty ADD – or, as I like to think of it, I’m preventing repetitive stress on my hands by all the diversions.
I’m plying the Falkland fiber – yum. I keep hoping that it will be soft and wonderful enough to make a lace shawl. So far, so good!
Then, I realized that I didn’t have any orange yarn. So I finally got out the pot I had bought last summer to using for dyeing, and made some orange yarn with food color – I’m pretty happy with the result!
The yarn skein on the left was what I started with, and I ended up with a pretty electric color.
Feeling brave, I got out the acid dyes, and the superwash bare yarn from Knitpicks, and with the base acid dye, then doing another dye with food color to tone down the kelly-green-ness of the first pass, I’m pretty happy with the result.
