  • It’s beautiful. I love how hand dyed yarn makes the individual garment unique. It takes a knitter, a designer, and hand dyer together in a way that creates something perfectly of a moment. A moment where three people come together to create one garment that can never, ever be replicated.

  • SO happy you and Kay are blogging again – I’ve missed y’all! Lightning-fast is fine!

  • This is part of what makes dyeing yarn so much fun. Have you tried any kind of dyeing? So many ways to do it, and some are unbelievably easy! It helps if you keep an open mind when you’re pulling the wool out of the kettle…like, “magic!” instead of “uh-oh!” I’ll bet you would REALLY enjoy it!

  • 1) I want to see her greys and
    2) well, I’d blog for 15 minutes, too, if I could come up with something half as lyrical as your description of the shades greens.

  • Memories of Fern, and photographing Fern on a barefoot baby in Monteagle, come flooding back with this yarn.
    A Forest of Ferns.

  • Truly enjoying hearing from you gals more often! Enjoy your bits of chartreuse – so very “early Spring”!

  • Funny, I’m noticing the same thing with some hand dyed yarn too. What fun.

  • Please keep us posted on Thorn. I’ve had my eye on it since I saw it on the Brooklyn Tweed site. Now if I can just finish projects that I’ve already promised to family members. . .

  • The chartreuse will be loverly, I am sure. I gotta think about this lightning blogging thing — I put up a few pictures this morning and spent forever futzing with the $*#$(* html on blogger. Talk about ancient technology…. Anyways, love the scarf — knit faster so we can see!!

  • I love your lightning-fast blogging! I LOVE that you are blogging more!! THANK YOU 1,000X from Bangkok, Thailand, where you are first on my menu each day as I turn on the com at work!

  • Here, here, Ann!
    I am relatively new to the wonder of color “surprise” that can occur. I first remember experiencing it within a skein of Noro Silk Garden. I don’t know if Noro is hand dyed (embarrassing, but I don’t), but the surprise was a wonder just the same. Totally different colors from the main color scheme, but that was the whole mystique…

  • So happy to have you guys to read again..please know the smiles you bring!

  • i am also in awe of those who have such innate (or so it seems) colour sense. i would give half my stash for a weekend where i could plunge into colour theory, srsly, and play with the possibilities. for now, though, i am happy to knit up the skeins that others have played with, and like Diane, am just generally tickled by what comes off the needles.

  • Just in case you DON’T like the lighter shade in your finished piece? Inspired by you guys and your use of a bleach pen, I took it the other way and used an indelible marker to color in some stitches I didn’t like during a Noro knitting escapade. Worked just fine.

  • Gorgeous colour Ann. I am in a very green mood these days – maybe it is a hankering for Spring ? better than being in a blue mood for sure …… ;0)

  • Love Alisha’s yarn…She’s a sweetheart too.

  • Love. The. Wallpaper.
    Hubby won’t let me put any up. Something about ruining the walls and his dislike for visual texture. Maybe this is why I knit: can’t get enough.
    Speaking of texture and Ink — get a load of this! Friend is knitting it… http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ink
