Hand Dyed and Spun Scarf


Lacy Baktus pattern, If you get your google on you should be able to find it online or a search on Ravelry. My handspun corriedale and hand dyed yarn about 3.6oz.

The yarn:
neon handspun

Neon green and neon purple 2 bottles each. Then overdyed green section with 1 iceblue koolaid and 2 of lemonade. Overdyed the purple with 2 grape I think. I'm not sure why I used so much dye with this. I'd like to try this again with less dye.

I really like how this turned out. I used too much dye as it's tuning my hands pink while I knit.

The yarn in it's undyed glory after being washed and whacked:

Corriedale Spun

This is some of my first handspun yarn that I successfully plied, about 358 yards.

  1. You are my idol. The walnuts are falling off the trees at my school and I picked one up to check it out. The liquid dyed my findernails and a week later, I can still see a tinge of brown. I had no idea it could be used as a dye! Very Cool!
