But! It was a new base for me. And a completely new dye technique that I had never tried before called stipple dying. It was SO FUN to experiment with. But it took some serious getting used to. And after I screwed up one skein... and then another... and then another I threw my mistakes in the dyepot with a bunch of leftover dye and was all FINE. YOU WILL JUST BE PURPLE. STUPID YARN.
However my fit of rage lead to some really gorgeous yarn.
Shalom Cardigan pattern that everyone, myself included, knit a few years ago.
It knit up crazy quickly. Then on one of the MANY snow days we had she asked me to make a skirt to match. So we dug out some fabric and cranked out a Lazy Days Skirt. Easy.
|Literally that morning by 9:30 we had made a skirt and the boys had watched a movie and IT WAS ONLY 9:30 WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DOOOOOO. There were a belligerent amount of snow days in a row this year.|
The finished outfit is just darling. A photoshoot after her art class at the CMA was necessary.
|90cents for buttons?!|
Yay for Shalom Sweaters!
