Remember this photo from May?
This photo was taken on a warm sunny day while my lovely friend L dipped her hands, along with some Gaia Organic Merino, into a beautiful blue-green tub of indigo. This experience of hand-dying yarn was a first for both of us. So.Much.Fun.
Three months later (I know, I know!), I have knitted results and I’m thrilled! We both are, I do believe. We dyed enough yarn for both of our boys and I brought it all home to knit matching shorties. (Gah! I know!)
Seeing a project through from naked yarn to dying to knitting and finishing is incredibly satisfying! Will there be more dying in the near future? I’m not sure. I am, however, enthralled by the process… from fiber to garment, sheep to sweater. Spinning to knitting. Oh my, yes.
