some more hand~dyed yarns




These are just a few more yarns that I've dyed ~ 4 of the 7 or so I've made recently... a thicker yarn, and if I say so, a bit better wrapped-into-skeins than my first batch.... just loverly, don'tcha think? Hopefully these'll sell well...

Hi! I came here by way of Andrew's blog...I'm a knitter, too, but at the moment, I'm more than a little preoccupied with my fiber animal (that's my Husky dog). Knitting and dogs seem to be my passions in life. I love your hand-dyed yarns...beautiful spring garden colors!

Cool pics! These bundles remind me of my childhood when my Mum and my Grandmother would leave bundles or wool, alongside unfinished projects and knitting needles everywhere.

true that, little foodie :)

There's someting quite grassroots about handdyed yarn ~ knowing that this particular skein, no one in the world has it. Awesomely unique!

It turns whatever you're knitting, as plain or fancy as it may be, into a more unique project!
