RROU #3 Dyeing Adventures

I almost forgot about this last update XD

I didn’t do much dyeing last year… I did a skein or two earlier in the year, and for the holiday season, I had a grab bag for my local knitty group’s holiday party, so I initially was going to dye just one skein…. turned into three 😛

My dyeing supplies 😛

Setting up to dye

I don’t reveal my sekret dyeing application….. not yet anyway. Mayhap I will make a video of it someday…. Onwards….

Hanging to dry…

Crappy picture of dried skein! 😛
I dyed this for Petrina’s birthday. She said it looks like Socks That Rock, and it kinda does. 

This is the skein I dyed for the grab bag

After the overwhelmingly positive reception of my yarn at the holiday party, I have been toying with the idea of becoming a dyer for profit. I think my shit is great… even non knitters have said they like my yarns.

Guess we’ll see what happens this year.

It’s to DYE For…

I couldn’t resist a good pun 😉

I’ve been dyeing with Kool Aid and Wilton’s icing dye.

It’s so much fun! The colors come out amazing, and I have the utter satisfaction of having something unduplicatable (COINING WORDS AGAIN??!??)<3

Pictures? Of course [picture overload warning]:

Dyeing is so addictive… I’m mixing it with my other new love (spinning) so I can be really authentic!
