Last weekend we dyed even more yarn. Sometime you get really surprised
when you start mixing colours and/or putting in already dyed yarn. Luckily we have no bad surprises just amazing, beautiful colours.
The purple to the left is a hot pink hank that went into the bright blue (middle). It’s got lots of different pink and purple shades.
The short green one was an old kinda dirty yellow with some orange, that I decided to redye. It also went into the blue bath and at first it looked like a really ugly boring brown... But we left it in the bath a bit longer and after washing and drying it came out a stunning olive with some brown shades in it!
The dark purple to the left are is a blue that went into a red bath and then we poured in some more blue dye! The light one is just a lighter shade from when the bath had cooled down.
My sister (visit her very inspiring blog here) sent my daughter some wool for xmas. Not wool yarn, but wool for felting and an instruction pamphlet on how to use it. My mum is visiting at the moment and they spent some time yesterday trying it out.
They made a beautiful bracelet for me and a funky one for Mira. Isn’t it amazing what a clever 8-year old and a nana can come up with!
