I was beginning to think that I was never going to show you another fiber-related picture in my posts! But here's one!
I dyed two skeins of sock yarn this morning. I love, love, love to knit socks, and since I've almost completed the baby blanket for our little grandchild, I thought it was time to get busy with some socks.
So this is the skein of 'cool colors'.........I'm not much of a cool color person, but I really do like this combination.
and here's the warm color sock yarn:
I'm very pleased with how both of the skeins came out, and I can't wait 'till they're totally dry so that I can get them wound up into balls and start knitting!
I also did some screenprinting this afternoon. I had dyed this silk broadcloth yesterday, and then screened it with some white textile paint, using a thermofax screen I had made from an old doodle.
When I was quite young, my Swedish Nana gave me some fabric that had a red background and white vines and flowers similar to these. I absolutely loved that fabric and finally talked my mother into making me a dress from it, as I was too young to do it myself!
Hope you had a great day!
