Dyeing Yarn • FIRE LIGHT
I woke up well before anyone else in the house & i took that as a sign to quietly record my morning. Today I dyed Fire Light. I dyed multiple batches of my plush sock, dk & cozy yarn bases in this colorway & it will be listed in the shop in the next few days. This colorway takes multiple steps, first applying stocks that I had mixed to create the variegated base and then a second time into the dye pots, where I focus on speckling the yarns. This colorway ends up being a bit time extensive but it is totally worth every second. You get a very quickly and simple version of the colorway, here, whereas multiple layers of dye & speckles are applied to every batch. A big part of my morning went towards organizing all of my in stock (or on hold) yarns that I have in my shop. Each tupperware holds different yarn bases and I really enjoyed the process of just organizing the colorways, as I had made a bit of a mess when shipping orders yesterday. I did get a moment, earlier, to sit and knit a few rows on my Briochevron Wrap by Stephen West of West Knits. This is a cozy wrap that I am making out of leftover yarn from other projects and such a sweet & simple potato chip-y (for me) knit. Something about the sound of knitting needles… Listen in & you can hear my parakeet singing his hellos! Sheena
