You guys, I have a dying FO this week! The weather turned a little nicer so I sneaked outside on a break from work and took photos of our Easter dying attempt.
The tie dye turned out very nicely! It was very muted compared to the yarn but I’m guessing that is the difference between a plant fiber and an animal fiber. I have zero idea of what we will do with this fabric as it literally just tiny remnants. But Jellybean was really pleased with this “art” and that might just be enough for me!
I think the yarn made a very lovely variegated skein! As predicted we have white/undyed spots for sure. But it’s not a bad first attempt. I have not yet re-washed this skein to see if I am going to have any dye loss. I will for sure do that before working this up into a project. I 1000% percent do not trust my dyeing skills…lol.
I think this looks really nice skeined up even! This skein was a partial leftover so its around maybe 50-60 grams? I’m not sure what I would even want to do with this once I’m safe the dye won’t run on me. But all the value of spending time with Jellybean and forgetting about the state of the world for an afternoon was well worth it. Even if I never knit this!
I think you’ll find it will need up beautifully and your white bits will be fine. I look forward to seeing what you make.
It you sew, you could make pillows with the tie dye as a panel with other fabrics or small zipper bags, or drawstring bags.
Is there enough yarn for shortie socks? Maybe subtle stripe socks alternating a solid with the dyed every other row?
Looking forward to seeing what you do with both the fabric and yarn.
Wow! I don’t knit but I totally admire you! Katie 💕
They look really good! Could you knit Jellybean some socks if there’s not enough for a grown up pair?
How fun! I hope you do knit it; maybe into a hat for JB.
