it is a good day to dye

I think this weekend shall be quite a dye-filled one.

I’ve got some merino from Denny to dye up – I’m going to dye it all, then give half to Denny and we’ll both spin it up and see how they compare. On the left there is a 225 g bag of merino/tussah (I’ve actually got two bags…shhhh) and on the right, sock yarn.

I bought the sock yarn to make the Traveler’s Stockings from Knitting on the Road – I love those socks! I couldn’t quite find the right colour though, so I bought some white to dye instead. Plus, I had this awesome leftover dyebath to use that was just right – I can’t for the life of me remember what went into it. I think it was a case of throwing roving into the pot, squirting some dye on it, and this mixed dye was what remained. In any case, the yarn’s already been dyed tonight (and I had to go and mess with this original awesome dyebath because I thought it wasn’t enough dye) and it looks awesome. Just perfect. Pictures soon!

    Your title is so Klingon. Don’t tell anyone, but I kinda miss the old school – new school Star Trek.

    Have fun-fun-fun dyeing that beautiful yarn. Looking forward to those promised pictures.
