I hope everyone had a great weekend. We had fun in LA, and I even found a few gems at a vintage store I had never been to. One of my finds was an old 1950's cardigan, weirdly from Ireland, for $19. Total score. If I remember, I'll take a picture of it. I also got a cool belted jacket for $18, a '50's skirt for $18 and a cute scarf for my hair for $4. It was a little chilly at night there, and I was even able to wear my Chroma scarf. A total win to the weekend.
Now on to yarn dyeing! Another great part to the weekend, my mom bought me a ton of Kool-aid flavors/colors I've been unable to find in my area. I just used them yesterday (the yarn is still drying so that isn't what I'm sharing today) and it turned out great! I'll share it in the coming weeks.
Originally I was going to share the new self striping that I started swatching on Wednesday, but I didn't have time to finish the knitting and re-hank it. That will be next week, so be sure to check back for that.
Today I'm going to share a color that I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but I love how vibrant it is. This picture doesn't do it justice, but it's the closest I could get to the real thing photo-wise.
