Dye Day...and

It was dye day here at Chez FiberDev. All sorts of things were cooking. Cris needed some skeins dyed black for a project so out came the dyes, dyepot and assorted items. Once the dyes are out it's an opportunity for any undyed yarn lying around -- why setup all that stuff to dye 3 skeins black? Julie came and brought her handspun. My girls had a blast dyeing Julie's yarn. We also made more knitted lined purses since Cris missed the class -- Cathy joined in on the fun and made one too!
Then, later after everyone left and I had dyes leftover I grabbed 5 skeins out of the stash and went to town. Here's a couple I dyed -- I grouped the dyes in 3 colorways, blue/purple, red/orange/yellow




and, still cooking, black








But before I go...it's my blog-a-versary! One year (and 10 days) ago I uploaded my first post. Since then I've finished 4 pairs of socks, 4 scarves, 1 cardi, 2 pullovers, 1 wrap, and a hat. It's been a great year of knitting triumphs (Mavis) and failures (didn't get the gold for my olympic vest), but all and all it's been fun. So here's to another year of knitting and blogging and to kick things off, here's the first pair of socks for blog year two, yarn: Trekking XXL, pattern: Conwy from Knitting on the Road by Nancy Bush.
