Knitting and Dyeing



I'm still working steadily on my sweater.  I love top downs and all, but now that I've got the neck just right and the color work done, it's miles of mindless knitting.  I'm definitely going to have to add in waist shaping and some color work around the bottom, or it may get too monotonous.

In between rows, my attention was diverted to dyeing wool.  I was trying {again} to replicate the color I used for my i cord bracelet.  Not even close.  So I dropped the skein into a pot of aqua and olive.  It's growing on me.

What are you working on this week?

p.s. I'm joining in with Ginny's Yarn Along.

  1. That yarn is gorgeous, I love it! I just finished up a honey cowl for me and am working to finish up a pair of fingerless mitts for a friend.
