Color to dye for . . .

There are several stages of the dyeing process that just makes me smile!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

  • I love to see the color transform the bare yarn into vivid new colors!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

  • I like how to different colors, when they flow into each other, create a new subtle color that just joins the skein together!

  • My favorite part of all, though, is when I soak the dyed yarn afterwards; in the water, the colored yarn seems to become fluid itself, and it’s beautiful to see the colors in motion — like a watercolor artwork!

This yarn should be ready for re-skeining and listing in my Etsy shop sometime tomorrow — probably late afternoon to early evening! I’ll post a pic here when it’s finished!

Now, to come up with a floral name for this yarn . . . hmmm . . . !

  1. Looks like pansies from here…the light purple, with the yellow faces, and green leaves. You know they’re supposed to be edible. Hmmm
