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