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 stopped in at a local knitting shop yesterday while I was wedding shopping with my daughter.  OMG!  Look what I found.  They are called the Fibersphere.  They are really neat.  They keep your yarn clean and the coolest part is you can put two together and use them to keep your sock yarn from getting all tangled up when you do two socks at once on circular needles.

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 finished paying for the Schacht Matchless and brought it home.  I am having such a good time with it.  I have ordered the wooly winder for it and am still spinning the wool I got at Enchanted Yarn and Fiber!

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.
