Did I mention wool dyeing lately??!!!
Here we have the Utiku 100% Merino Baby Yarn I dyed for the TNN Painting Yarn Swap. This swap was the same format as the Spring swap. Some wool, a pattern and a recipe.
My swapper chose George Seurat’s ‘The Circus’ for her painting. I decided to dye some 4ply yarn to match so she could make use of the fun toe sock pattern I found on Ravelry. Cute huh!
I used Tillia acid dyes this time (these dyes ROCK :-)). The red, orange, yellow and green were painted on in small repetitions, with the deep blue dispersed in dots around the hank for a random speckled effect. The recipe was for ‘Circus Pops’, a great little treat to make with your children.
And here’s the parcel after opening……..
So what’s next? Our local TNN Knitting group have decided to do a Kiwiana Yarn Swap :-). Yay!!!! I have been given my swap partner, so check back for a progress report soon.
