DYEING AND OTHER STUFF

Thought I'd share what I've been up to this week.

I dyed several skeins of Lion Brand Fishermen's Wool for felting and CIC projects.

This orange and pink is in process of becoming a hat. Hopefully I'll get off the computer and finish knitting it tonight, so I can felt it tomorrow.












I felted a hat this week.
















Crocheted a couple baby blankets.


















And knit a vest for CIC.

Comments:
you have been busy!! but i don't see your scarves....love that orange and pink!
 
I love the vest, is it for a child or an adult. I lke simple patterns and wild yarn. I live in Ca. and enjoy both kintting and crochet. Would like to know where you got the pattern for the vest if possible. You are very talented-love the way you use color.

That is a child's vest. I used this pattern: http://margarethubertoriginals.com/newpage1.htm

I cast on 6 more stitches on the sleeve and worked it for only 1". Then cast on 3 less stitches for each side of the body. Since this vest is rather short through the body I probably won't decrease the body stitches next time. I knit a size 2, and it used about 3 ounces of worsted weight yarn.
 
i love what you dye,..............so pretty
 
just revisiting tonight........
 
Hi Suzetta,

I would love to dye some of the Lion's Brand Fisherman yarn as well. I bought it along with some kool-aid packets to try my hand at hand-dyeing. However, I wasnt' sure that it would be colorsafe when I felt the project. How do you do your dye process? Do you use kool-aid as well? Could you e-mail me? Would love to get started with it since my kids are off this week from school and we could make it a fun project together. Thank you for the free patterns too! Love reading all your stuff!
 
I love visiting your blog and seeing your projects. I have been trying to make up my mind about making a babygan to match a set I have finished after seeing yours . I got to start one tonight :) Loved the hat.
