The last few days have been very productive dyeing days. I think the dyeing goddess was looking out for me. I'm afraid to count the days until my next event, but I know it's coming at me like a runaway train. I'll take any help I can get.
Part of my dyeing time was spent on multicolored skeins.
These colorways, dyed in lots of two, are all one of a kind.
Since I don't intend to repeat these specific colorways, I kept very sketchy notes when dyeing them - something I never do. I've learned the hard way that if I want to reproduce a colorway, I need to keep detailed notes.
Instead this project was a good exercise to test new color combinations, and I'm sure that I'll do it again. It was fun to play around and not worry about the details. I felt like a kid with a new box of crayons.
I also spent time dyeing up new colors for Lucia. These will be unveiled as soon as I have pictures taken.
I've made progress on Milkweed Shawl although it's hard to see. I keep ticking off the rows, but somehow it doesn't seem to be much bigger. I'm in that black hole phase where no matter how much knitting I do, it doesn't seem to make much difference. But I have faith I'll get to the other side. I'm beginning to see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.
I leave you this Monday morning with a story of community knitting in action. The town of Cardigan, Wales decided to knit a cardigan to celebrate the town's 900th anniversary. The finished product is truly amazing and definitely one of a kind. You can read all about it here.
