1  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Re: First real dye job! on: March 20, 2009 08:09:05 AM
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!

Hi all,

Here's my attempt at dyeing some sock yarn.  This was my first serious attempt and I think they turned out pretty well!  What do you guys think?

hey guys,

i haven't begun knitting this but i've been watching the knitalong to get ideas about yarn and stuff.

i found this 100% silk yarn and it seems like a really good price.  i don't have the pattern yet so i don't know how much yarn is needed but this yarn seems really nice.  i don't know what you could use for the fancy bits in the middle though (string beads on the yarn on your own maybe?).

i'm also thinking about brocade but right now i'm too scared to start.

i did find this blogger who's already started hers though using knitpicks. it looks nice.

(is there anything etiquitely incorrect about posting someones blog without them knowing it?)

awwwww that is so cute!  i love it! 

i wish i had a baby to knit sweaters for.  they knit up so fast and i'd feel like i'd actually accomplished something, instead of taking months to finish a sweater  Tongue

good job!  Smiley

well i usually have about 3 that are "currently" being worked on but i have at least 5 that are in my closet and haven't seen the light of day in about six months.  i feel so guilty  Embarrassed

no, i didn't do any shaping, i just knit a straight tube.  i figured it was fitted enough that it didn't really need shaping. 

that's something i was wondering about though.  when you do decreases for waist shaping in the round do you just k2tog where the waist should be?  it seems like it would be weird if there were just random decreases in all that stockinette.  what do you guys think?

socalulu99, the pattern was $6.50 at http://www.knitandtonic.typepad.com/

yup, top down is pretty much the only way i wanna knit sweaters from now on.  you can try on as you go and custom fit for your "irregularities" (like my wide shoulders and little boobs  Tongue )

wow thanks for all the comments!  you guys are too nice  Grin

when you knit a sweater from the top down it starts as a flat piece with 5 sections (left front, left sleeve, back, right sleeve, right front) and you just increase every round until it's long enough to connect under your arms.  then you put the sleeve stitches on 2 holders (or scrap yarn) and start working the body in the round (now just left front, back, right front).  then when you're done you can go back to the sleeve stitches, put them on a circ and knit in the round (each separately).  does that make sense?
