So, I’ve been dabbling, again.
The Dip Dye Method this time.
See, I have all these amazing lacy/scaley/etc. sock patterns that I need something a little more subtle.
Well, as subtle as Tangerine can be.
Here’s the mound (20 – 50 gr skeins) of Louet’s Gems (in cream) I procured from Connie.
I need Test Subjects, after all.
I felt the need to colour coordinate.
All trussed up and ready to dye.
Can you hear its thin, high screams?
It’s trying to escape.
Le petit spaghette
The process is a little tedious for someone (like me) who needs instant gratification.
The dying process (not including prep soaking and prep time) took three and a half hours.
Yarn – in the wild – basking in the sun.
Dyed, dried and twisted.
I’m in love. Seriously.
