We used the knit and natter room at Jumble Jelly for our fun. We lay out a huge piece of oil cloth, and set up our supplies. This was after the boring part of soaking the yarn, in which we went out in to the town and bought snacks and paintbrushes and vitamin D.
We chose our first colours and yarn. I picked green and red to go on a sparkle yarn, and MJ chose orange and purple. When we mixed the colours the ladies on the workshop in the next room came round to see what the incredibly sweet smells were! I do believe we were intoxicated by the kool aid as things got a little silly.. MJ and I were skipping down the street (or was that before we started?!) to get more snacks later...
Here are some of the others we did:
But this one is awesome... its a sock blank! (What's a sock blank?! Its two strands of sock yarn knit together in a rectangle, you dye it, undo it into two balls and then you knit matching socks :D)
And finally, here they all are after cooking, cooling and rinsing!
And I've enjoyed dyeing so much... I bought some big girl dyes (ie acid dyes) so watch out for my adventures with those soon!
Now Laura... its your turn to tell the story of your skein!
