I dyed up yarn while I was at the retreat a couple weeks ago.
I used 2 skeins of Kroy sock yarn and Wilton frosting dye, along with water and vinegar.
I used colors that reminded me of Lake Huron, the beach, the log cabin and the sunset. I always use an odd number of colors when I am dying, I find it more appealing to the eye.
After letting it dry, I wound it up on the ball winder.
I used the Very Stretchy cast on, worked stockingette to a Dutch heel and then did a fan toe and finished with a Kitchener stitch to graft it together.
Last week I had one sock done
Yesterday I finished the second sock
I had about 12 yards of yarn left over
All of the information about the cast on and heel are on my projects page on Ravelry.
I love having a memory I can wear.
