Colours, colours and more colours

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.

I have some much beautiful yarn now that I will make into
kid’s beanies and other things. I will hopefully be back at the
Devonport Craft Market in a couple of months.


Hot pink dye bath

Well, with all that cotton yarn and dyes lying around,
it’s difficult to keep my fingers off!

Today we mixed a hot pink bath and put in some unbleached and some
yellow from last time. And look! Different shades of pink and the yellow
hanks turned out in shades from coral to fiery red.



Yellow and green

Mum and I dyed some cotton yarn in the weekend.
It’s so much fun!
And it came out beautiful, didn't it?

Some of the yellow will go in a red dye batch
and I will try some in hot pink, just for the fun of it!

Mum brought 4kg cotton yarn from Sweden.
Stay tuned.
