One of the things I did last weekend was dig around in the cabinet I use to store yarn. (It was originally an entertainment cabinet. I feel this is fitting.)
Among other things unearthed from the deepest recesses, I pulled out remnants from the time years ago when I tried my hand at dyeing sock yarn. A Ziplock bag full of little pots of unused Jacquard dye powder, and eight skeins of very light fingering yarn (430 yards/100 grams) that had never sold.
These skeins hadn’t sold online, they hadn’t sold at a crafts fair I attended. Even I didn’t want them, and I was the one who had dyed them in the first place.
“Hmm,” I thought. “I bet I could overdye these into colors that I would like better and possibly knit into shawls, should the mood ever strike.”
Three batches of stovetop dyeing later, and here’s the result.
Not bad! I think the bright blue skeins in particular would be perfect for a Bigger On The Inside.
