Dyeing party

So Alex came over yesterday to dye yarn! We had fun, and my hands are still purple/pink. Here is our yarn:

1. Alex's Earth Day-style sock yarn. 2. My blue and green worsted weight. 3. Alex's red/orange/pink sock yarn. 4. My green and pink sock yarn for Katie. I might add a little more color to the light spots on this one, but I want to see how it looks after it dries some more. 5. My red worsted weight. 6. My yellow and blue sock yarn which needs to be re-dyed because the color didn't take really well.

After dyeing we then watched The Office and knitted. Successful day, I would say!

I am working once again on Twist & Shout. I'm about 1/3 of the way up the back. So far so good. I also started a new baby sweater. I realized the other day that I have a ton of Swish DK from a previous failed adult sweater, and I looked through my queue to see if there was anything I could make Christian using DK yarn. I found the Easy Baby Cardigan, and I started that right away. That's all I'm working on these days. Otherwise I'm just waiting for yarn to dry so I can photograph it!


  1. ANNIE ANNIE ANNIE! :) Thank you sooo much! I can't wait to see it in person! You are the best!

  2. Yay! I'm glad you like it - I was pretty sure I couldn't go wrong with green and pink!!

  3. Well I'm predictable! What can I say!
