Following on from this post I have had some more wool dyeing fun last night….this time in pinks.

Here is the photo story.

  1. awsome stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. That looks fabulous Kate, you are so clever! Is that using your ashford/acid dyes? It would look amazing as a Rainbow dress! knit it, knit it, knit it!

    • LOL you enabler!!! Yes it is with acid dyes from Tilla. I am starting a rainbow dress with TWC teak for the bodice for the first 100g I did yesterday so it will be a rainbow dress for sure!

    oh lovely dying! .. can’t wait to see it knitted up 🙂

    how did you find the dying? .. more time consuming?

    • Dyeing was fun. There are two time consuming parts – dividing the sections up and then untangling each section to wind into a hank again. Last night two of the pink colours were a little tangling but with patience you get there.

  4. Lovely colors! If you’re getting tangling maybe tie a few bits of string around each section? When I’ve done dying in the past that seems to work for me.

    • I am interested to see how they look knitted…I am 1/2 way through the first lot I did and it looks more self striping so will have to modify my technique a little.

      I had tied each section 3x so must have been from me poking the sections in the dye a bit too eagerly!
