Got some yarn soaking in vinegar outside. I'm really keen to do some hand dyeing. I'm dyeing a skein of cashmere which I don't like the colour of. And two skeins of Helen 4ply from Posh (cashmere isn't Posh). The Helena Ibought in a creamy colour so that I could dye it myself. It's been lying around for ages waiting to get done.
done some photos this morning of some gorgeous yarn. I knitted the foot of the May Sockamania socks and although I'm happy with the pattern etc I'm not happy with my knitting and I'm starting again. I did the first foot in Yarn Yard and although I lvoe the yarn I've done a few socks in YY yarn lately and fancy a change, but I can't decide.
Shall I go for this pale blue Posh Saskia:
This gorgeous Posh Emily:
Or stick iwth the original choice, this equally gorgeous YY (yes it's the solid from the March (?) club yarn - Natalie dyed some more for me.) The YY is on the right. With the Emily in the middle and Saskia on the left.
And I've been trying to choose some prize yarn for May's Sockamania. I was thinking of these two skeins of Silkwood sock yarn
or the pale blue Saskia (if I don't choose those for the May socks themselves).
Although while I was waiting for the pics to upload I checked my pm's on Crafty Yarns and Chrissy has offered to donate some prize yarn so there may be something else completely.This beautiful Posh Sophia 4ply arrived today. No plans for this yet. i'm just going to be drooling over hte colour for a bit.
Oh, and a sock. This is the one I knitted at Spring Harvest. The yarn is Posh Lucia.
Look at this gorgeous skein of Shaefer 'Elaine' that Kerrie from Hipknits sent me to play with. It's for a felted bag creations. Not sure what yet but I got it out today to get some inspiration.
