Over-dye madness. Insanely intriguing varigations.
Here I have heaped the over-dyed green yarns for my Nine Year Old Niece’s sweater on top of the finished and waiting sweater for my Twelve Year Old Niece.
The ‘bug-guts’ yellowy green has over-dyed
ever-so-nicely into a color
which reminds me of golden green tips of bright moss !
All the colors of the foliage in the forest are running through these four yarns in a very earthy woodsy colorway.
I have roughly 200 grams each of four different greens, each with many varigations in their various journeys from dye bath to dye bath.
I’m not exactly sure what I am going to do with all of the crazy varigation. Yesterday was all about dominating the yarn, now that I’ve had my way with the colors, not exactly sure. I think I’ll let them dominate me for a while. At least until I get the sweater cast-on. I actually love the challenge of listening to my instincts , and the yarn. Sometimes this whole business of dying, knitting, and improvising is just downright delicious & fabulously exciting !
