yarn update


Last night I finished knitting the cat blanket I was making for the guest kitty. I'll try to felt it the next time I do laundry.

Day before yesterday, I finally dyed yarn again. All of 400 grams of yarn dyed; all sock yarn.

Some Sandnes Sisu (fingering, 80% wool, 20% nylon)
Sandnes Sisu

And then some Sandnes Tresko (sport or DK, dunno - a bit coarse but not so much that it hurts to knit with, 80% wool, 20% nylon)
Sandnes Tresko

And some Sandnes Perfect (heavy fingering? Very soft 85% wool, 15% nylon)
Sandnes Perfect

And lastly some more Tresko:
Wintergreen Sandnes Tresko

I don't know what I did "wrong" with the last; I have a few theories. Actually, I think it ended up pretty, but it's not what I aimed for. I guess the Perfect soaked up all the green, leaving a near-exhausted bath for the last load.
