Min mindste nevø fylder 12 om godt 1 måned. Mens jeg var i USA, fik jeg en ide til, hvordan hans strømper skal være, og i går farvede jeg så garn. Strømpetæppe fra Knitpicks fik en smal grøn stribe på midten, og 2 nuancer blå på hver side.
Det fik VIRKELIG godt med farve, og det var faktisk svært at skylle det overskydende ordentligt ud..
My youngest nephew turns 12 in a bit more than a month. While I was in the US, I got an idea about how his socks are going to be, and yesterday, I dyed the yarn. A sock blanket from Knitpicks got a thin, green line down the middle, and 2 shades of blue on either side.
It REALLY got a lot of color, and I did have trouble washing out the extra color.....
The rest of the dye ended in a pot with some other sock yarn (with cashmere. Delicious!) and got to sit there for a while.
Det er sjovt at farve garn!
This is how it looks today - almost dry. My nephew wants knee-high socks (deep sigh), so I made 2 blankets in the same way. I'm quite excited how it will look when knitted, and whether my idea turns out the way I thought - stripey in the 2 blue shades with a bit of green here and there.
Dyeing yarn is fun!
