Time to Dye again!

It was time to dye another colour and this time it was time for the pink-orange version and I was really pleased over how it turned out.

Here it is, ready for cooling off.
Drying in the sun and this time I dyed 2x50gr as well as 1x100gr. The 2x 50gr are for socks.
Dried and ready for use.

I feel that I really can get used to do this and I have already the next colour in mind, a golden one. Let’s see when I’ll have time to dy it.

1st Hand-dyed Yarn

Finally! I have for some years now (since 2017) wanted to try out to dye my own yarn and now it finally happened. I was very nervous at first but it was so much fun and I want to do more now. I’m a big fan, follower, and patreon of the Bakery Bears Podcast and have been following them from the start, and Kay who is the dyer of the duo (Dan & Kay) has dyed up so many beautiful colourways through the years and I have bought some and won others. Now she has a dying show that’s a part of being a patreon can get access to, where she shows her ways of dying some of her beautiful colourways and it’s this that got me starting this year. If you want to find out more about this Duo, then jump over to their Webpage for full information and the history of their work with the Podcast.

So here’s a few photos of my first ever hand-dyed yarn.

When I got to this stage, I really wanted to stop and I will do that the next time.
Here it is in it’s finished colour and it was time to let it cool.
Hanging up to dry.
Here it is. My first hand-dyed yarn, ready to knit with.

This was so much fun to do but it does take time and planning but I loved every minute of it and will do this again. Planning to make a pinky peachy one next time.

The 2nd Moondust

2nd Moondust finished

I never showed the second Moondust efter it had been blocked, so here it is!

It didn’t turn out as good as I was hoping for and that’s probably because of some reason this one turned out to be longer than my first one. The yarn is the same, just another colour, and I used the same size needles but it still turned out longer. I must have knitted this one looser.

Here’s my first one, check the size difference between them!

And this is the designers one that’s on the pattern I bought.

So I might rip it all out or just leave it for a bit and see how I feel about it later.
