to dye for...

By now, you've all heard that Marie had a fantastic dyeing party at her appartment on saturday. She has tons of dyes, and it took us quite a while of staring at the sample cards until we could each invent a colorway.
Marie's dyes
I dyed 4 balls of Misti Alpaca Sportweight to make Evelyn Clark's Shetland Triangle Shawl from Wrap Style. It's a triangular shawl very similar to the Flower Basket Shawl, so I didn't want too many colors to compete with the lace motif. In the end, I Jackson Pollock-ed various shades of green. Here is the result:
My alpaca yarn
I love it!
I must be the last to post about this fantastic party (I started writing on sunday, but then I got ill, and I had an interview today, gah!), so I have the advantage of having seen all the Spiders' newly dyed yarn, and let me tell you: the yarn is beautiful and we had loads of fun.
Next up: my secret pal, Special Mittens, scores again! Pictures in the next post.
