Color, Color, Color….Oh my!

What a week! I actually got to dye twice this week….and the results were just beautiful.

And this…

And this….This was a “squeak” moment for me. I had beautiful colorways and they had brothers. This means that I was able to duplicate the colors for 2 or 3 skeins. In the handpainting world, this is a BIG DEAL.

This was Tuesday’s dyeing results. I was able to squeeze another day in today and they are still drying and so pretty.

So, with such wonderful results and a passion for dyeing yarn and such wonderful support from my friends and family, I hear by announce the birth of my very own business. Details to follow.

I am developing a website where you can view the yarn and even purchase the wonderfully colored wollies and I will ship them directly to you! Everyone deserves some happy mail!

A little fiber information about my yarn. It is a 100% Merino Superwash and the yardage is a whopping 450 yards. Enough for a shawl, scarf and hat, you get the drift. This yarn has a beautiful twist and is super soft but I would not recommend it for sock. If you are knitting for wee cherubs, it’s perfect for wee knits since it’s a superwash.

After many late nights, I am off to bed and it is yet another late night.

Happy Knitting and stay tuned for all the great details and more pictures.
