Happiness (1000)

Six hours of dyeing with my favorite dyer.


It doesn't get much better than this.



The artist at work.


Ta-da! So cool. I'm happy just writing this post. Such a fabulous knitting weekend it was.


And look! I dyed that! You know me and blue. I pretty much love this!

The yarn is BMFA Geisha. Yum.


And this is 100% 2ply silk. Another yummy.

I wouldn't mind dyeing yarn more often if it was all set up for me and clean up was taken care of (Stephen and Debra are rockstars!!). And of course, Tina's yarn. Perfect. Well, I take that back. I could do without the fun fur. Yes. It was high-quality fun fur that Tina had us dye, but still fun fur nonetheless. I'm thinking of turning my fun fur into some type of pet. Or I may mail it back to Tina tied with a pretty bow. hehehe.

Happy Dyeing!!

It's interesting to see different methods of dyeing. Everyone seems to do things a little bit different - which makes it all the more fun!

That looks like an absolute blast!! I would LOVE to have been there. :) Susan B Anderson's Itty Bitty Toys just came out and I bet you could find an animal to knit with your fun fur that Little Guy will love! :)

laura said...

You know, I maintain that dyeing doesn't interest me at all, but prep and clean-up provided? That could change things, at least once, maybe?

chemgrrl said...

Pretties! And I agree, I must see this fun fur.

My group didn't do the fun fur, and I'll admit I'm glad. Not my most favorite stuff. But the rest? So much fun! It was great to meet you and your yarn is gorgeous.

Zonda said...

Oh I bet it was a wonderful time! Hehe...I'm with Cristi, where's the fun fur shot! could say Merry Furmas...yeah...

Jean said...

Looks like so much fun, and no clean up afterward (tee hee). The yarn looks divine. Someday I would like to go to a knitting retreat.

There are uses for fun fur...Well, let me get back to you on that one.

But how super fun it must've been to dye with Tina again, especially in different fibers.

Erin said...

Love the blue you dyed! Great work. Sounds like such a fun day.

Rani said...

How fun is that? I'm jealous. I agree with you that having the set-up and clean up taken care of would make it all the more worthwhile.

Fun Fur: Make an Alan Dart gnome with a colorful fun-fur beard for Christmas!
