Insert Bad "Dye" Pun Here.

I really like dyeing yarn but I don't get around to it as much as I would like to. This is probably because I am constantly lining up new projects that don't require my beloved hand dyed yarn. Oh well, at least I have pictures.

This is a hank of merino lace weight I dyed for my cousin Amy. Does she knit lace? Couldn't tell you. It's pretty, though.

I also dyed a skein of self striping sock yarn last fall that lingered in my stash for months.

This is it in ball form:

And in sock form:

These will serve me well in the winter months. Carry on.

Nice striping sock. That will keep you nice and warm in Chicago.

Ok, your self-striping sock is downright professional looking...

Wow! I didn't know you dyed yarn!
I love the reds and browns together! ;o)

Pretty soon you will be spinning your own yarn too!!

I love the stripy yarn too. I have a hank of yarn in my stash for a couple *years* waiting to be dyed...
