Yarn Along ~ Daisy Chain


I'm working on a hat for myself, but I'm not sure about the pattern-yarn-me match so I've been going slowly with it.  I'm just starting a little cardigan for Rowan using some yarn we dyed before Christmas.  I've dyed yarn many times, but this time I used the tutorial at Kathryn Ivy and found it worked really well, even on the super wash yarn I used.  The colour is bright and held with little to no dye coming off at the end.  Rowan was able to tell me the proper rainbow colour order from a song from the Cat in the Hat show.

I'm re-reading The Handmade Marketplace right now, hoping it will give me some more ideas for my business.  I'll be taking something else from the book shelf very soon though.

joining in with Ginny for this weeks Yarn Along.

I think it's a great hat color so cheerful and bright on these cloudy days of winter!

Wow, that picture of your yarn-dying process is really intriguing!
