I’ve been talking about overdyeing a lot for the last weeek, but
today I want to share the results of a dye project I did on Bare yarn.
I’ve been admiring Kristen Rengren’s Zora
Cardigan ever since the design was published last winter, and really
want to make one this summer. I love the effect of the hand-dyed yarn
in the original, too, and didn’t have anything like that in my stash in
the right quantity, but I also have too much stash (and not enough in the budget!) to justify buying so much yarn for a new sweater!
I did, however, have 5 skeins of our Bare Merino/silk yarn just waiting to be dye projects.
what it looked like after the FIRST round of dyeing. I had to go
through two more to get what I wanted! Read on to find out more…
