Knitty is back!

What a summer this has been! I moved to a new place, got married (man! that was fun!) and got a summer job as a librarian!  Also lost my knitting-mojo somewhere along the way and haven’t knitted for about 1.5 months now. So what better way to kikc-start your knitting-mojo than a beautiful baby blanket?!

I’ve been looking at the Bring-it-on baby blanket from Pickles for days now and finaly bought the yarn. I bought one of my favorites, Icelandic Kambgarn, in four colors: beige, gray, blue and kind of green/blue. It’s 100% pure new wool, spun and dyed in Iceland and comes in so many fabulous colors.  The blanket will be a gift to my friends baby, a little boy due in the fall. Can’t wait to cast on! :)

And yeah, did I mention that my deliciously scrumptious and vibrant hand dyed Eigingirni can now be shipped worldwide and I accept PayPal? Yes indeed! :)

HAPPY SUMMER KNITTING!

Dyeing again!

I spent yesterday in the kitchen dyeing yarn.

I used yellow, red and green foodcolor, water and vinegar. I used the instructions on this site and tried both hot pour dye method and dip dye method.

This is the result:
