Dyeing

I like to experiment with different dye, spinning & knitting ideas; so I thought some of you may be interested is some of them.

This is Corridale roving that I dyed with Easter Egg Dyes by Paas that you get for doing egg coloring with children at Easter.  I was lucky to have the help of wonderful spinner on spin-list who were willing to send meEE dyed Roving.jpg (62004 bytes) parts of their stash so I could complete a commission I was doing.

I also have a pic of the spun yarn.ee_-dyed_yarn.jpg (12392 bytes)

 

This is the same roving spun & Navajo plyed.  It makes wonderful sock yarn.

This is easy to do, & is safe to do at demos with children.  I spin it medium fine, then usually Navaho ply it.  Great idea colors for kids sweaters, hats & mitts.

Charmin's Hat

This hat I designed with my son in mind, who is in forestry school.  As I was knitting it my daughter kept telling me how much she liked it & how it was going to be far too small for him. (He is 6'8) Well, even though I did a gauge swatch, she was right, so it became hers & I  knit him a bigger one.

Needle Felting

Hat wflowers.jpg (11992 bytes)

This hat made of Handspun wool/mohair blend.   It was first knit oversize, then felted in the washing machine.  After it was done I decided it needed something to give it a lift, so I needle felted these little flowers on it.
