Knitting and Dyeing

I have been trying to find an opportunity to write this post for several days. I returned from Chicago last Monday and every day has been full. I won’t bore with all the details but here is a portion of the fruits of my labor.

Knitting first because it is a knitting blog after all, right? So, I told you I was planning a couple of new lace projects soon and I cast on for the first one a couple days ago. I got the first chart knit. This is one of Dee O’Keefe’s newest releases called Mayuri. I am making it with my Classic Merino Superwash Sock yarn in one of my new colors, Peacock. 

The second newborn sized woolie is completed for Meredith’s little one, so that’s another project done. I haven’t much touched the sock in progress this week so nothing new there.

Now the other work I have been doing that may be of interest to you is some custom dyeing for the New Era Fiber Mill, only this job was hand painting some yarn. This top one was an order for an Ombre in blue. I didn’t technically hand paint this like the other two jobs below; I used a progressive dip immersion process. I am pleased with how they came out, which is good because I was totally making it up as I went.

Here are the other two jobs:

I am actually headed out the door to deliver these right now so I will have to close. I am off to Allegan, MI in the morning for the Michigan Fiber Festival so my next post will probably be from there. Never a dull moment.
