That1girl, I love  that yummy yarn!

What is the pattern or stitch called?  It looks like stained glass!

It's a free pattern from Bernat that I got off Ravelry. It's just called Afghan #3663. I love the stained glass look, too!

I totally forgot to post this little guy:



He was a birthday gift for my son and I was pretty proud of myself because I made up the pattern as I went along. Smiley

I started that pattern, but with out the black stripes. I only got two rows of color before I gave up. I didn't feel like counting single/double/triple crochets. I prefer mindless patterns.

Always, I took a natural dying class over 30 years ago! Lots of varying greens and browns, muted colors. Using different mordants would make the same material different colors! We did get to do one batch with cochineal and one with indigo to get red/purple/blue tones, and would reuse dyebaths to get paler colors. Oh, man...onion skins make a lovely gold/yellow, but you need a lot of them. Ironweed, as bright purple as it is, makes a brown dye. We used tomato vines, elderberries, I forget what else now. But it was a lot of fun!

In my hippie days, I was into this a lot...I think I still have my original list of colors, etc...just have to find the notebook!  I dyed some paper using hibiscus tea...I love it because the colors go from pinks to indigo, because of the flowers used!  It is random and I would love that for yarn!  Also, with natural dyes, you can use them cold...I might try testing them on some wool sweaters to be felted!

Thanks for the afghan pattern--I have always wanted to do a stain glass afghan!

Oh, yes, those were the days, Cheesy. And the really cool people had a color-wheel hanging on their wall, made of natural hand-dyed wool in the colors of the rainbow. I was never that cool, I just made a bit in a yellow-gren color - I think it was the easiest to make.

October is Here!

Color: Black
Pattern: Lace
For: Pets. Our furry friends put up with a lot from us, and may not realise the sweaters we make for them are signs of affection. But don't let that stop you making a hoodie for your horned lizard.
Challenge: We've all got that special material we've been holding onto forever. Maybe it was really expensive, or it's the last little bit of a fabric you love, and you've never been able to bring yourself to use it. Gather your courage and just do it!

bananaleg, I love those cuffs! I want to do something like that or maybe some leg-warmers this winter. I love the color as well. Cheesy
