Dye Your Own Yarn!

I have put together a little Dye-Your-Own-Yarn Kit!

This is the dye I use everyday for my yarn. It is called One Shot. What makes it so wonderful to work with is you don't have to add anything to the dye other than boiling water. So no vinegar or anything! I love working with it. Each of the kits comes with a set of 1oz bottles of dye in primary colors (blue, yellow, and magenta). Also included is a 1/2 oz bottle of synthrapol (soap) and a skein of yarn of Superwash Sport Yarn. More yarns may be added later. The directions included give a choice of dyeing your yarn a solid color, or (my favorite) rainbow dyeing your yarn! Check them out in the shop! This would make an excellent holiday gift!

Baby Hoody

I finished something!

I finished this super cute hoody for X. He has already grown out of the smallest size of the Debbie Bliss Hoody (Rav Link). The pattern is from Special Knits: 22 Gorgeous Handknits for Babies and Toddlers. I knit the 2nd size up, but with the 3rd size length. X is long and skinny, so hopefully this hoody will last him a long time. It sure is nice to just slip it on and go. I started it on our flight to Dublin and I finished a couple weeks after we got back, quick and easy. I knit it out of Cascade 220 Superwash Quattro in color #1929 Long Beach.

Hopefully I will be back soon. I have been super busy signing up vendors for the Columbia Gorge Fiber Festival!!! There still are a few spaces left, so if you have thought about being a vendor, make sure to get your application in soon! Thanks!

There is still lots of good yarn available, like this California Poppy Alpaca Lace! The perfect thing to brighten up those rainy fall days. Also lots of yarn good for getting a head start on those holiday projects! I may be adding more over the next few days, so make sure to check it out!
