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.
