I have been doing some more dyeing!  Imagine that!    One is rainbow sock yarn and I have started a pair of socks out of it already.  One is Mr. Moody Blues for my husband, MR. MOODY BLUE himself.   lol   He hates all the bright colors and thinks they look awful so I made him some he would like.  ALL BLUES!  And the last thing I posted are Kelsey’s finished socks.  I hope they fit!

Here is my newest dyed yarn.  Most of it is kool-aid dyeing, but the yellow in the citrus colors (the yellow, orange and green yarn) is actually lemon sugar free jello.  Kool-aid does not have a bright yellow so I thought I would try this and it seemed to work.  In the cornucopia colors (yellow, red, green and dark red yarn) the yellow is acutally from mustard.  I used the same idea just I used mustard in the water/vinager instead of kool-aid because we all know once mustard gets in something it never never never comes out.  LOL   Both have been thoroughly washed and rinsed afterwards in very warm water and they did not fade out.  Thank you to Enchanted Yarn and Fiber for all the lessons! 🙂

I am spinning Soy Silk for a very special project.  I can’t say what for just yet as she reads my blog. (but some of you already know) 🙂

It is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo soft!  It is going to stay the natural color.  I am so very excited and can’t wait to design the pattern for this project.  I got the Soy Silk fiber at Enchanted Yarn and Fiber.

Today at Enchanted Yarn and Fiber, I took my second dyeing class.  The first was the kool-aid dye.  I did not get a picture of it up but I did get pictures of this class yarn.  🙂    I made 2 skeins of sock weight yarn and I am going to cable ply them.  I can’t wait to see them.  Did I beat you getting up pictures Nancy?  LOL

UPDATE:  I named this colorway  RAINBOW SHERBERT 🙂  that is what it reminds me of

I will post a picture of it when I am finished.

Ok here is my progress on the knit a long at Enchanted Yarn and Fibers.  (thanks to Jan)  Is it just me or is this pattern hard to follow and does not give enough details?  I like the pattern and after Jan explains certain rows I get it but I would never have gotten it from the pattern instructions.  This yarn is Katia, Mississippi 3 print, colorway 200.  (from my yarn stash)

Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy – my first skein (thanks for saving this for me Ashley).    I did this last week at EnChanted Yarn and Fibers.  I don’t think I would have thought about saving it so I am glad Ashley did.   I don’t know how many yards it has in it but then I will probably never knit it.  It is just nice to keep and see my progression as I learn to spin.   This week I picked out a large bag of fiber and started spinning.  It is very relaxing.
