A very happy day at camp!

Just one week ago I had a fabulous day at camp dyeing yarn with Tina!! Loved every, every minute of it!

Of course, it was even more fun with Tina's fabulous assistant, Cockeyed!! Oh, I miss you already Debbi!!

It is inspiring just being around Tina's creativity!

So this time we experimented with overdyeing. First, my "uncomfortable" color from camp last year.

Can you believe it turned into this??? I love it!

This gorgeous yarn is just a bit too bright for me, but a very good friend gave it to me! Thanks Marcy!! See, I was thinking of you at camp!

I hope you don't mind that I turned it into this!

We also got to play with 2 STR blanks. Here is my color gradation skein.

I love this one too!

As much as I loved dyeing my own yarn, well, Tina's colors just sing to me! Yes, just a sampling of my new stash!

Here's to a fabulous week ahead! If you haven't entered the Merrily contest yet, go here. Loving all of the suggestions so far- thank you!!!

Happy Knitting!

Oh to be in Tina's presence....that would be one of the first things I plan on doing when I get to Canada: travel to Sock Camp in Port Ludlow!

Lovely dye work, Carrie.

Now see... THAT almost makes me want to try dyeing. I could take the yarn that I like but don't love and morph it into love? Really?!
