I have always wanted to dye my own yarn especially sock yarn and last night I finally did it! I only dyed one 100gm hank of sock yarn just to try it since it was my first time dyeing and I think it turned out very well. It is mainly orange but has lots of different shades of orange in it too and a little dark gold. I have yet to name it but will find something soon. This hopefully is going to be a start of a new line of yarn!
I will also be dyeing a nice hunk of yarn for my giveaway and will soon be posting rules and how to enter the giveaway/ contest:o)
My LYS is a wonderful place to be. It is probably the nicest LYS around for miles and miles. I stopped in Thursday and Kim and Karla the owners told me that they are getting a whole bunch of new yarn and gadgets. They were at the huge yarn market a while ago and will be having their anniversary sale durring July 15th- July 18th. Durring those days they will be having drawings and huge discounts and clearences plus they will be unvailing their new massive shipment!!!!: ).Magpie's Gottage has also extended thier hours as of June 23rd their new hours will be......
It is going to be soo much fun the next few weeks as Iwill be yarn shopping, dyeing my own yarn for my giveaway, and starting on my christmas gifts. Yes I know it seems a lillte early to start thinking about Christmas but if I don't start of my gifts now than I'll be swamped when it comes to November.
Magpie's will soon have a Ravelry Store! When they do I will post all of hte information here. But until then take a look at their website! : )
Right now I am working on a crocheted Granny square Afghan out of leftover balls of yarn from other projects. It is coming along nicely and my sister is going to configure a pattern for me out of the squares. There are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, and pink squares. Each square has three tones of that color in it going from the lightest tone in the center to a darker tone the next round and so on. The colors are looking really nice together and I hope to be finished with this around sometime later this week.
Please follow my blog. If you are a follower when I sell my patterns and yarn then you will recieve a discount. But anyways please follow my blog it is kind of depressing when you only have one follower.
I'm sorry that I haven't kept up to my promise of blogging more. I have just been so busy lately. I have been knitting for sock wars and crocheting among the loads of school work as the year comes to an end next Wednesday.
I am designing patterns and testing them out before taking them to my LYS to see what they think of them because they'll sell my patterns if they like them: ) Right now I am working on a thick and soft luxurious cabled hat but need to perfect the pattern. My patterns will be for sale soon.
I am going to be hand dyeing sock yarn and if all goes well than I might possibly sell a line of that too depending on everyone's comments whether they like the colorways or not.
