Dyeing Workshop

5/21/2010 Today I was notified by the retreat organizers that the retreat has been canceled. I don’t know anything more about the situation but if you had signed up, contact the organizers directly.

5/20/2010 The workshop has been put on hold while the company organizing it deals with some issues. I’m waiting to see what the outcome is before I move forward with more plans.

I’m so excited to be teaching a 2 day dye workshop in Chicago, November 12-14. There is also a Ravelry group set up for the retreat with more information here Hand Dyeing Retreat.

There will be plenty of hands on time, dyeing yarns with different techniques as well as time for knitting with hand dyed yarns. We’ll be exploring methods of developing colorways, sources for color inspiration, and how to get the knitted results that you want.

The workshop is limited to 20 people.

Super DK on SALE

I’ve put the last of the Super DK on SALE – for an early Holiday gift. There are less than 10 skeins left of this yarn. I am tempted to keep them for myself as this yarn knits up into wonderfully soft hats and scarves – I’m going to resist it for a few days and offer it to you! When this is gone its gone. It was a special purchase from a top rated bale of British Merino. So soft and dreamy………..

British Merino Super DK

I’ve been happily dyeing and playing with British Merino in a squishy soft yummy Superwash DK weight. I’ve been sooooo distracted by this yarn, that all thoughts of blog posts have vanished! 

OK, so now I’ve finished dyeing all that I have and its uploaded onto my website. (there are more than the 6 colorways shown above!) Its going fast and when this is gone, well, its gone. This yarn was from a special purchase of the top rated 2007 British Merino bale of wool. Merino sheep are well known for their soft, crimpy, springy wool and this yarn has all those characteristics. I’m so lucky to have so much of it!

 It is very creamy soft and lovely. I can’t think of enough superlatives for it! This is one yarn where it truly would be great to be able to reach through your computer monitor and squeeze it!

It would be great for hats, scarves, baby sweaters, heavy socks….. pretty much everything!
