Berries & Cream

Berries & Cream~   This one had to become a ruffled soaker for a sweet girlie!     This one is about 4 ounces of Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool, presoaked and tied. (Remember, details on the typical corck pot dying method can be found here.)   This one was dyed in my trusty crock pot. […]

Mountain

Mountain was another attempt at a brown and green colorway. I love the variations in green that emerged!     This one is about 4 ounces of Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool, presoaked and tied. (Remember, details on the typical dye method can be found here.) This one was dyed in my trusty crock pot.   […]

Kristie’s Stripey Yarn

I posted about this yarn back in 2009, but I had included two yarn recipes in the post. For ease in searching yarn recipes, I decided to re-post each yarn separately. I dyed this yarn for a friend's baby shower gift. She was expecting her third boy and decided to give cloth diapering a try […]

Sienna Mist

I adore this yarn! For now it's in the Etsy shop, but it may not stay there long. I may start knitting with it myself!   I used my typical crock pot dye method for this one, with the usual presoak in vinegar water. I used about 4 ounces of Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool. My […]

Oh, Brown, How You Vex Me…

I have been absent a seriously long time. But you that, didn't you? I had a nice little sickness that started off my blog hiatus. Really it was a bit of asthma irritation. But I was also busy during the past month with many projects, some of which I will fill you in on during […]

Black Cherry Lemonade

This is one of my favorite yarns that I have dyed! I wasn't sure how it would come out. Honestly, it was a scary experiment. The moment I pulled it out of the crock pot, I was in love! I used about 4 ounces (half the skein) of Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool. I skeined it […]

Green & Blue Tie Dye

In honor of the Cushy longies giveaway, I thought I would share how I dyed the wool I used to knit these longies. When the yarn was hanging to dry, Hubby said it looked like it had been tie dyed. So we dubbed the yarn "Green and Blue Tie Dye." I used a full 8 […]

Caribbean

I absolutely love this blue yarn! The blue dye "broke" into blue and purple. It is gorgeous! And hard to photograph to really show the true color of the purple tones in there! At least while it's in the hank. I have been able to replicate this yarn. When I dyed the second hank, it […]

From Sherbet to Blue…

Unfortunately, I dye and knit with yarn much faster than I blog about either. However, I will try to catch up to myself. I love seeing dye recipes that others come up with, so I really want to share some of mine as well. I posted not long ago about my Sherbet yarn. I knitted […]

Skittles Delight Longies

I realized that I shared about the Skittles yarn that I dyed, but I never shared pics of the longies that I knitted with the yarn. So without further delay, here are my Skittles longies… I dyed this yarn and knitted the longies last November. I can't believe that it has taken me so long […]
