Knitting and Dyeing

 This is the Daybreak Shawl by Stephen West.  I used hand dyed yarn by Alexandra's Crafts in the Baby Silver Falls color way, and Lorna's Shepherd Sock in the Hermosa color way.

 Then I got seven skeins of Knitpicks 100% merino dk weight yarn that I had to re-skein for dying.  I needed longer skeins so I could tie knots in the yarn to create a resist.

 Here's the dyed yarn wound up into cakes.  It was impossible to capture the colors with my camera.  I divided each skein into two balls so I could mix them up while knitting.

 I started knitting the Calligraphy Cardigan by Hannah Fettig.  This is the ribbing for the neck.  Notice the size 6 Signature needles that Mark bought me for my birthday.  Yay!

In my next post I'll show off my new Fancy Kitty Kitten Motorized drum carder!
