Dye Party v1.0

It seems to be dye party central here! I had a dye party last Tuesday with my fabulous knit group in Stevenson.

Here is a group of them and some of the yarn they had dyed. It was raining out so the lighting wasn't the best. Still it was lots of fun! It is so interesting to me the different colors that each person dyes up. Everything turned out so pretty!

The dye party was held at Teri's house. She is an amazing knitter! She knit up all of these socks from handpainted yarn! She thought it would be inspirational to have them all hanging up while we dyed yarn. If you look closely the 3rd and 4th pairs of socks from the right hand side are knit from my yarn! How cool is that?! I just had to snap a photo of the whole line! On top of the dye party we had a potluck dinner. Those ladies can cook! Everything was amazing. Though the very top was Teri's homemade lemon meringue pie. So lots of good food and good company! I have another dye party tonight with the wonderful ladies of Knot Another Hat. Hopefully the weather will stay nice and I can get some good photos.

In other news: Take a look at what I got! That is nearly 50lbs of yarn all destined for the Knit/Purl Sock Club! I can't say much more than I am really excited. I also got a sneak peek at some of the Koigu for the club. Let me say it is totally gorgeous. Also if you want a sneak peek of the colorway I am dyeing check out this post on the Knit/Purl blog!
