SO gorgeous! I must admit, brown/blue makes me MELT every time I see it. So that one has to be my fave, it is stunning, but all the rest are just as beautiful! Yummy yummy yarns. Cheesy

I love all things shiny, glittery, and colorful.

I hang out in: Fiber Arts, Needlework, and the Swap Board!

Wow, thanks everyone!

The base yarn is from Indie Dyer and it's the same as Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Merino.  They dyes are Jacquard Acid Dyes that I got from Knit Picks.

I'm excited to knit some up but I've dyed about 10 skeins so far, each with 420 yds, so that would pretty much take me forever!

Did you hand paint these?  I'm trying to learn to dye yarn and I want to produce sock yarn that looks as good as yours does!  How did you achieve the look?  I almost bought Jacquard dyes but have been afraid to buy anything until I know or find a good tutorial on how to make yarn look like you did.  Thanks!

I craft therefore I am.

I looked at the first and thought, wow, that is gorgeous! Then I scrolled to the second one and thought OOOOOO that's gorgeous, too! And then there were more! What lovely colorways!  You really picked great complementing shades and I love the saturation of the colors that you used.

I would love to do a personal swap for stuff for my lonely, empty walls!
