Re: Knitters/Hookers/Spinners/Dyers *WIP* 8/6

I have no paypal other wise I would buy the barn owl first. It matches my sister's wedding colors for this fall.

I love this!! I will have to buy this pattern soon... dd wants one...does it come in size 6??


Here is where I am at on the romper....I think I am going to run out of colorway I will have to dye some more up...


QUESTION for the dyers.... how do you keep track of how you did the colorways... I mean, do you just eyeball them, do you place the colours always at the same places on the wool, do you measure out your dye??
I made dye stocks for each colour...

This is cute! I want to know how they keep track of the colors too. And what do you store your dye stock in?

Yeah its a yymn SH. Its FR Fire on the Mountain. I think its just too bright for my taste. Its like bright orange, an orangey red (which like to clump together :banghead) and then then lime green, bright blue and brown. Just not my style. Maybe Ill like it better once it starts behaving.

I got Brooks on Cestari and Ellie's Rainbow on superwash. The lovely ladies of WSK are the featured fiber artists on TOKW for October. I had a really hard time choosing only 2 colorways.

I store them in jars...either mason jars or reused jars.

Do any of them come with 12"? I have to have a set with 12" ones to make it worth it for me.
