The kind of saturation we’ve got going on outside is not especially inspiring.
But inside, my spur-of the-moment dyeing project yielded really cool results!
Started with roughly equal amounts of white (Frank) and light brown (Griff Spring 2012)
Divided into ziplock freezer bags and treated to food coloring and koolaid microwave spa treatment-
It was magically transformed into this-
Nothing like some deeply saturated color therapy on a grey day!
So now the question is, do I spin them up separately and do some cool stranded colorwork, or blend?
I spun up a quick little blended sample from the carding waste so I could get an idea of what it might look like jumbled
But I’m having a hard time deciding. Suggestions are much appreciated!
And I am please to report that I finished the Maui shawl
It was a pretty fun knit.
I don’t usually do shawls, and I’d never done anything with a “knit on” edging, but it was really slick.
You only cast on 3 stitches, and only cast off 25. Very clever.
Well done verybusymonkey.
