How much do I love self striping yarn?

15 Jun

Enough to go through these shenanigans.

That there is a long hank.

I’d say this is well worth the trouble.

Oh hello there colors, waiting to come out!

I’ve been wanting to do self striping rainbow for a while.  As a first try, I’d say this is pretty good.  The yellow is a little neon and the purple is a bit dark, but now I know what to do next time.  I’m anxious to see how large the stripes are too, as I didn’t plan that part ahead of time.  At least I’ll have a frame of reference of fencepost to fencepost next time I try this.

It’s been too hot to want to knit too much during the day.  Having this yarn dyeing outdoor operation is a nice change.  I wonder, could I somehow rig a dyepot to the gas grill??

    I love the last pic, beautiful! If you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself!

      Thanks! I think I love dyeing more than I do actually using the yarn I dye, heehee.
