Last Friday night I picked up some handspun. I had made a deal with myself that I would only move up fibre (including yarn) when I was ready to use it. It was an attempt to remain organised and tidy. I also made a deal with myself to work through all the WIPs… Some deals are meant to be broken, right?
The poor shed is in a right mess so each time I go in there I bring a bit more up and then Sophie wanted this dress by Tikki after seeing this one by Kylie. I had to go through Mum’s old stash and see what I could find – with so much in that stash there had to be something suitable and with so much there I still cannot justify buying yarn.
The yarn pictured is Patons Caressa a blend of 45% wool, 45% Dralon(r), 10% Mohair. It’s 8ply. It’s in 50g balls and I have enough to construct the dress but……
IT”S NOT PINK!!!!!!
Apparently green, orange, dark blue and yellow are ok. The lack of pink is not.
So, I am going to attempt to dye the pale blue (which is actually barberpoled with white) with some red Landscape dye that I have and see what we get.
