just realized some pictures are duplicated and out of order, forgive me. I updated from my phone, and will fix them tonight
Phew never ending, just got home from a trip to Ohio. Toph’s grandmother passed away last year and her house is being put on the market. So we drove over for one last family reunion, as chances are with starting a farm (sooner rather than later), we won’t be going anywhere far from home.
I’ll give you a quick update on the fiber I re-dyed, and then a picture of what I have been working on.
Dyeing with food coloring take two
You see, I went into it all wrong, sure I read about dyeing with food coloring, but I didn’t read that parts where plant based fibers dye differently then animal fibers. I need acid based dyes, I don’t have any, however I do like the turn out of this (bamboo/silk/merino), so I think I’ll spin it and see what happens.
I may have mentioned on our last trip, that my husband’s driving scares me…okay well it’s the other drivers on the road that scare me, he just has a habit on getting on people’s butt when they cut is off.
To cope I made this
I LOVE knitting gloves, sure the middle finger is one stitch too wide oops, and the thumb is a little wonky, but this was fun. I overcame my fear that I would suck at knitting gloves! Now I have all these ideas for patterns running through my mind.
I checked my wool when I got home last night
Hello algae, you were not expected. After talking it over with one of my guild mentors & friend, The conclusion is that the algae arrived due to the translucent tub. I will use a different one next time.
Here are a few pictures from our trip! Only two more trips left (bachelorette party & a wedding) and then I can take a deep breath and spent the next several months at home.
Have a great day folks!!
