I wanted to show off my latest foray into yarn dyeing. I call it Sweet Aunt Petunia’s Blue-Eyed Thing. Impossibly long (and ever so slightly wanky), yeah I know.
It is destined to become a set or two of baby hats and socks. None of the parents-to-be I know are expecting deliveries anytime soon, so that is why I wanted to show off my colourway a little early. I had found it difficult over the holidays to obtain a blue that was rich enough to satisfy me. I just don’t have that much Kool-Aid, and it is not the right shade. This blue came from 2 packs of Easter egg dye and a whole lot of vinegar.
