In the Greenwood I

This was another roving dyed with Greener Shades dyes. The Amazon Green dye is extremely potent; a little goes a long way. Consequently, by the end of the dye session, I still had quite a lot of it mixed up. Using roving from The Sheep Shed Studio, I applied it at full strength, then started watering it down. A dash of this and that left-over color and here is the resulting roving:

Spun up, it had quite a variety of color:

Plying blended it all together nicely:

A closer view:

Once again proving that dyeing must be almost fool-proof, as I’m really just winging it but happy with the results!

    Hi! I’m so excited I found this blog – my MIL recently purchased me a skein of your In the Greenwood 2 yarn – I’m a beginner knitter so getting amazing, hand spun yarn is real treat that I don’t usually feel I merit with my skill level 🙂 – I just wanted to pop in and say how much I love the texture and the colors and that I can’t wait to work with it – it’s on deck after my sweater is finished…I’m still mulling over what to make!

    • Sorry it took so long to respond to your comment! Glad to hear that you were the recipient of one of the “In the Greenwood” yarns. Did you work it up yet? If you have made anything with it yet, and want to share a photo, I will be glad to post it to the blog. In any event, if you share a photo of your finished project, you get a 10% off coupon for any future purchase. Hope to hear from you!
