Finally I have some pictures uploaded to share my dyeing adventures with you, dearest theoretical reader. I have been having so much fun in my dyeing workshop, especially since Chris helped me finish my skein winder. Now I can quickly and easily wind my cones of undyed yarn in easy-to-dye skeins, and then go crazy with the dye. I am nervous about dyeing too much yarn before I open up for orders...what if no one wants some of the colors and so I end up with a whole bunch of unwanted yarn? Thankfully I like all the color-ways I have come up with, so I guess I could just knit myself a lot of purple socks, or whatever. I guess I just need to bit the bullet and do it. I am not going to sell any of it if I don't have beautiful examples to show off. I won't start officially accepting orders until July 16th (July 14th for the Knit Picky crowd), but if you are interested in my yarn, especially if you are a yarn shop owner, feel free to go ahead and contact me now! I am still working on the website, there are a lot of pictures up but still a lot to add. Here are some pictures of my skein winder (made out of PVC!) and some freshly dyed yarn drying to give you a peek "behind the scenes." And I have to brag and point out that the pretty, brightly colored yarn (the left one in the picture of the two colorful skeins) was designed and dyed by Chris. Didn't he do a good job? Can you believe its his first time dyeing?
Update: The green yarn dried overnight and now its beautiful, at least I think so (but then I really like green). Here is a picture of it in the skein- click to make it larger. I have just cast on for a simple triangle shawl out of it. Can't wait to see how it turns out!
