A Day of Dyeing

A day of dyeing cotton yarn and fulled wool pieces. A nice small stash of yarn to take to the cabin for the weekend!

  1. I would love to learn how to dye my own yarn! You are brave to take it on. It looks like you did a great job! Do you knit or crochet (or both)?

    • I knit but have been slowly teaching myself to crotchet over the last two weeks. So far I have crocheted one granny square, a carpet for a barbie house and a barbie dress….the girls think crocheting is perfect for barbies.

    • The fulled squares dyed amazingly well, they sucked up the color like a sponge. I can’t wait until I start beading them. I still have six more squares to dye so I will probably try different colors next week.

      • I have an infinity scarf on the go and one ready to dye, plus a few items I am testing where I mix beading with knitting which may become Farmer’s Market items if I can get it just right. Working with cotton is so different from wool with the stretch and the dye uptake being different. Hopefully I will get a weekend of knitting in at the cabin, as long as I don’t become tempted to start another stitched and beaded art piece.
