Wow. It's so interesting how different it looks drying and then all skeined up. Very nice!What kind of dyes do you use? I want to do the laceweight I ordered from KnitPicks in fall colors... maybe for a Lace Leaf Shawl.
MINE! That one is MINE!!!
i'm trying to figure out how best to get some nice self striping going on like you have here once i finish the untangling... any tips? i was gonna go for parting into 3 skeins and dyeing each a different colour, but then there is the one long skein approach. you did such a good job, they came up beautifully!
Liesel, I used jacquard acid dyes. I kinda followed directions that were in the twisted sisters sock book.taryn, these were dyed in the skein. more or less randomly. for true self-striping, you need a MUCH BIGGER skein (the book I have on self-striping yarns says 40 feet), and you need to pay attention to where you're putting the dyes.
