I decided to handpaint some yarn to make some more.
Looks wonderful, I would knit socks with any one of those skeins. Dying's the next thing I want to try (just cause I don't have enough unfinished projects lying around...) ;)
Absolutely fabulous and something to appeal to everyone's palette. Well done.
013 is my favorite!!! I'm DYEING to see how the socks turn out.
Ooh, I love them! What kind of dyes did you use? And what weight is the yarn?
I use Jacquard dyes and the yarn is 4ply/fingering weight.
Very nice Craig. Beautiful hues. How did you hand paint them?
I used those foam brushes. Yarn wound into hanks, thwen soaked in water, squeeze out the excess, lay hanks out and attack with the foam brushed and dyes.
That is some great yarn, Craig. The resulting socks ought to me magnificent. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
Wow - they're all gorgeous. Great job!
Love the 'green with envy', and look forward to seeing the finished socks.
