How did I not know this board was here?!
I can't wait for school to be over (this is the last week.. ever!), because then I can devote my time to all things crafty, which includes having a day long dye fest. I'm even going to teach the boyfriend how to dye AND how to knit.
here's some handspun wool/mohair I dyed sometime within the last month. (I bought the handspun from etsy; didn't spin it myself)http://www.electro-k.org/apr07/100_5602.jpg
I used Jacquard acid dye in Gold Ochre, stovetop method. I love the lighter yellow bits that are mixed in there. I've knitted an earflap hat with it, which I hope to finish in the next week. (I only have to crochet the edging and that takes me forever to do)
I also dip dyed some SWTC Optimum, using Jacquard acid dye in Pink. I don't know how crazy I am about how it came out. Sure it looks nice in the hank and balled up, but knitted? :\ Maybe I'll find a good use for it.http://www.electro-k.org/apr07/100_5621.jpg
