Dyed Yarn Day
Last of a stash of KnitPicks regular "Bare" yarns that I dyed for some new socks for next winter. I recently purchase 10 skeins of the "Bare" super wash so no more knitting socks I have to hand wash, whoopee! These skeins were dyed with ProChem acid dyes and done very simply. Hot water, presoaked wool and a sprinkling of dye in each pot, simmer, add vinegar, cool, rinse and hang to dry. Notice Pelican hanging to the left - a poor dog toy waiting to be mended that belongs to my English Springer Spaniel Bizy Bea - just one more project waiting its turn!
