Dye day

Today we went to a friend’s house for socializing and dyeing! I was very excited for this, because I’d been wanting to dye some white handspun and overdye some bright green handspun that I have never gotten inspired to knit up.

copious use of rubber bands here.

indigo!


There was dye made from yellow flowers as well, but I chose to use only indigo. Compressed results:


4 skeins of yarn, 2 bits of fabric,1 pair of socks, and 2 t-shirts.  I’m so pleased with all the results! I’d hoped the green yarn would end up more of a blue, but the forest green is better (to me, at least) than the neon green!

Now I really want to try more tie-dyeing! I felt like I was a teenager again, working on my 4-H projects for the county fair! 😜
