Dyeing

More dyeing experiments!

I´m back. And on a dyeing high again. Yesterday I cleared out the kitchen again and dyed 10 hanks of sock yarn! Some of them I dyed in pairs, or in a similar colour, so I´ll just show you one picture of each colorway. Here´s how my third dyeing adventure went!

I had decided to see if I could copy my yellow skein from my second dyeing adventure. I loved how that turned out, and I think I came pretty close. This is a tad more saturated, but I love it! (This time I remembered to write down just how much dye powder I added to my mix. Bonus points for me!) 28167564093_39492c7032_kI wanted to see what the technique I used on the yellow skein would look like in another colour. Turned out nice I think! I will be trying it on other colours as well!

28167565123_680d12fc5f_kThis skein was a result of two skeins in the pot at once. I had planned it to be just pink and green. But I lost control with two hanks in the pot. I will try and see if I can make something similar, but I really have no idea.

This is a skein where I just went for it, and put in some left over colours. It´s a OOAK (one of a kind) for sure. But turned out kind of cool!

This is the reason why I´m so happy I managed to recreate my yellow skein and my purple and yellow skein. Don´t they look great together??? I´m expecting some 100% wool yarn any day now, and my plan is to dye up enough of these to make myself a shawl! I´ll have to work trough a few UFO´s before I start another shawl though…noste

    1. Thank you! I really really reeeeeally like that pairing of skeins too. It´s going to be hard to wait until I´ve finished some WIPs. I want to play with it like, now! 😉
