I came, I saw, I dyed
On Saturday Angeluna, Susan (defiantly blogless), and I spent the day at Heritage Arts. Originally the plan was just to go down and check things out, but then Angeluna brilliantly arranged for us to do some dyeing while we were there. Here's what I came away with.The blue skein was my first attempt, and I'm not thrilled with it. It's too bright and too yellow. I was aiming for something much darker. There's a strong possibility that I'll end up overdyeing this one. More than one person at knit night on Tuesday commented that "those aren't your colors" (as in, "we've never seen you knit with anything like that"). What can I say? I'm chalking it up to the enthusiasm of a first-time dyer. (Naturally it can't be that I have the color sense of a common warthog.) However, I love, love, love the second skein! It's right in keeping with my current obsession with autumnal colors. Yeah, this one deserves a close up.The proof is in the knitting, though. This lovely skein may knit up into a hideously ugly pair of socks. But you know what? I don't think I would mind.
I've gotten shockingly little knitting done this week, so now I'm off to figure out where I left my knitting groove.
