Calmly Dyeing Calmer...

I had a lovely Thanksgiving with my family and lots of food. I also was able to knit quite a bit. I made major headway on my flower basket shawl, but then disaster struck. Despite my careful and very scientific calculations, I ran out of yarn 4 rows from bind-off. DANG. Now I have to buy more Koigu... that sucks so much... HA. Anyway, here is a sunny shot of the pre-blocked lace. Very bumpy...

And now some pictures of my adventures in dyeing. I have some blue Calmer who's color I'm not sure of... I was wondering if it was even a possibility to dye, so I gave it a try. I also threw in some other yarn from my stash, since the dye was going to be used anyway...

Dying to dye.


The results were pretty interesting. The rust colored mohair didn't dye at all. The light blue wool/polyamide mix sucked up the color pretty well. The tan wool/acrylic mix dyed slightly. And the Calmer took on different hues which are all pretty cool...


Calmer dyeing.

So now I have to decide if I like any of the new shades of Calmer better than the original blue and whether I want to make the effort to dye it all. But!!! It is possible to dye Calmer! Pretty cool. Ok... now I have to get back to the Kinetics class that won't die.... HA.
