Fun Day Dyeing Yarn

2019-01-24 10.21.01-1So I had a order for 4 skeins in a very deep plum colour. To be exact, it had to be the same as the top 2 skeins. I  am very happy I was able to recreate the same colour and strength in the bottom 4 skeins as I have in the top 2.

Then decided to play around with 4 skeins of Fingering weight in a deep plum but much more with light to dark shades in same skeins. I am in love with this look and can’t wait to see them knit up.

The “Eggli Vest” has been published in the latest “A Needle Pulling Thread” magazine Issue #17. You are able to download the pattern if you can’t get the magazine by clicking on the link above.

As Carla the publisher of the magazine indicates:

“The Eggli Vest is a one of the most versatile vest in a long time, wearing it upside down will give it a different look and it’s the same vest! A little cable for interest and structure, and I-cord cast off for that final touch of class.”

Bear Cuddle-Iciuos Wrap

Bear Cuddle-Iciuos Wrap is a amazingly big and bulky wrap. Winter-chill today I can honestly say! Today is the day to wear my wrap at a bitter cold -29 degrees weather and windchill. Burr… is what I say.

When I knit this wrap with only 2 skeins of Borgo de’ Pazzi Firenze© Naturalia. In a natural colour with ohhh yes! 20mm needle thicker then my thumb smiles the yarn felt soooo cozy and warm. I have to confess I may even make myself a blanket in this yarn. It really warms you up.

Well I decided to knit a second one, with my own  “Knitswissyarns” I had bought several hanks of a really chunky undyed SW Merino weight yarn and some dye and off I went with my creative hand. Then the wait till it was dry. Knitting this one was just as nice as the first one. Now a very kind lady and her daughter can enjoy wearing it and keeping them warm too. Enjoy.

“Bear Kuschel-Iciuos Wrap”

ist ein erstaunlich groß und dicker Wrap. Mit der Heutigen Winter-Kälte kann ich ehrlich sagen “Heute ist der Tag, für so ein kuschelig warmen grossen Wrap su tragen – bitterkälte von -29 Grad. Burr … ist, was ich sage.

Echt toll war es diesen Wrap mit nur 2 Strängen “Borgo de ‘Pazzi Florenz © Naturalia.” In nature Fabe mit ohhh ja! Nadel dicke von 20mm also mein Daumen ist dünner als die Stricknadel…Lach. Das Garn fühlte sich  soooo weich, warm und kuschelig an. Ich muss gestehen, wenn die Wolle nicht verkauft wird werde ich sogar selbst eine Decke in diesem Garn stricken. Es ist wirklich sehr schoen warm.2014-12-08 08.12.09

Nun, ich beschlossen, eine zweiten Wrap zu stricken, mit meinem eigenen “Knitswissyarns” . Ich kauft  etliche Strängen von “Super Bulky” ungefärbter SW Merino  und etliche Dosen Farbstoff und los ging’s ich mit meiner kreativen Seite. Dann das Warten, bis es trocken war. Stricken war genauso schön wie der Erste. Nun eine sehr nette Dame und ihre Tochter genießen die wärmen auch von diesem Wrap. 

Das Muster ist bei Ravelry unter “Cuddle-icious Quasten Wrap von Helen Firing” und der Borgo de Pazzi Firenza Naturalia ist auch bei “The Yarn Store.ca” zu kaufen.  Meine Wolle ja da kanst Du mir schreiben wenn DU interresse dazu hast, im Moment bin ich noch mehr am Färben...
