Dyeing with the girls!
Sorry its taken me so long to post but I will start trying to catch up a little.
Awhile ago Janet, Deb, Bridget and I started getting together to knit and well just spend a little time together. We decided to have a play day in our barn/studio and do a little dyeing so I ordered up some worsted weight yarn and we each dyed 6 skeins and then traded a bit of each so we all have a great selection to work with. We are making our own versions of a friendship blanket and here is the beginning of mine. I cant wait to see how they all turn out.
I cant remember who dyed this but I love the colors.
Here is how it knit up. My first square finished. This is so addictive I just had to do another one right away.
This is a great way to play with color. I am trying to pull out the colors from the hand dyed square in the middle as well as create a balance with the borders. I will keep you posted as we all progress.
