INTO THE DYEPOT
So, up until now, I’ve been experimenting with dyes, mostly Kool-Aid, but a couple of weeks ago I decided to take this dyeing thing to the next level. I ordered the sample set of Jacquard acid dyes from Knitpicks and here are the results of a first time for everything dye trial.
This is some of my handspun – Natural Bare Superwash Merino/Nylon, dye color Vermilion
More handspun, this time Knitpicks Bare Superwash Wool/Nylon, dye color Sky Blue
I love, love, love the intensity of the color and, really, the process was a lot easier than I thought it would be. I’ll be doing more of this!

Babymama picked up the needles again earlier this year and has been knitting up a storm. Look at her latest project, modeled (of course) by Babydiva. How bout them cables??!!
