New blog

I have decided to split my blog so that my fibre-related activities can be kept in the one place. I have grand plans for becoming an indie-dyer, so I made the step to register a new domain name, move my existing patterns over, and jolly well get on with it.

I have two skeins of hand-dyed sock yarn to knit up and have a think about how to work with the colours I have already in my mind.

Should be exciting!

A good day to dye


I am very happy with my first forays into creating my own hand-dyed yarn. Starting with a couple of skeins of undyed Trekking XXL yarn and 6 dye samples I microwaved myself up a storm.

The two colourways created from this experiment: summer rains and limeberry blues can be found on the yarns page.

Photos will follow once I have had chance to knit them up.
