Yes, they do still exist here in Yarnnation!
This was over dyed from yarn that was left over from yarn I dyed a couple of years ago that my Mom knit into a Wonderfy Wallaby for Little Sir.
Now the Lion Baby wear that Wonderful Wallaby, but I thought that he should have his own as well. What do you say, Grandma? You up for knitting another one? Actually I think i may take this one, as I am needing some simple, just follow the pattern and don't think, type of knitting.
Some Superwash Merino that I though I'd throw in while I was at it. I love how it turned out. I don't really have a project in mind for it.
This is kind of a strange one. I've never dyed anything black before, but it was a very dark purple color that I didn't care for. I was hoping for a "raven" like look, but you can hardly see the purple at all. It really just looks black. Oh well, it will be useful for a hat or something.
And last, this was a big bundle of Cooriadale that I half submerged in order to exhaust the dye. You can see there was still a lot of dye left in the pat. I love spinning fibers that have a lot of white in them along side a dark color. I can't wait to see how it spins up.
And there you go. Proof that, despite a creative recession, fiber is still of great importance in our house. (Just ask the poor guys/gals that end up having to move my yarn stash. - Although, probably better that than all of our books.)
