Autumn Color Preparation

 Here's something I haven't done in a long time-dye some yarn! 
 Dee of PointyLittleSticks blog is doing a KAL 
which will begin on September 1, 
 highlighting Autumn colors.
 I have plenty of wool but needed a pop of color for the leaves affect 
I pictured in my head!  
So I dyed two skeins since the first one turned out so well!
It was a great day to dry them outside!
 The bottom skein is worsted weight yarn in a downy wool 
and the top skein is fingering weight superwash Merino.
 Here is side one of the worsted skein
 and side two.
 This is the sock yarn-side one
and side two. 
 I left a bit more undyed spots for this one 
to give the impression of a speckled yarn.  
We will see how they turn out on Friday!

  2. Beautiful colors! Keeping some bare areas is a good idea, and I plan to do that on the next batch I dye.

  6. Perfect!!! It may not feel like fall around here for ages but I am getting a bad case of the Halloween bug. It must be that Witches Brew candle I am burning.

 When I was in my teens, I played with clothesline rope for a basket (see last pics) but I covered it in wool yarn to echo Navajo basketr...
