The weather outside is frightful…well not exactly but it’s pretty cold so I have taken to indoor projects. I knitted up a baby set based upon Elizabeth Zimmerman and just love it. I enjoy that her projects get me to think like a knitter and not just follow a pattern completely.
Next i knit up a cowl from fleece I had washed and spun as part of my fiber study. It’s bond fleece and is so light and fluffy, I’ll have to invest in more and think of future projects but will probably stick to one color.
Yesterday, I was on my own so tried my hand at kool aid dyeing of some corriedale cream roving and loved it. it was easy, not too messy and non-toxic. My local grocery store didn’t have any blue kool aid so I may have to move on to food coloring. I followed very helpful instructions from purecrafty’s blog. So far I have spun up a single and will figure out how I want to mix and ply the colors.These are not my usual earth tones so it may be challenging figuring out the right project.
