Yarn Dyeing

We’ve been trying to get a yarn dyeing class on the schedule for a while now and it’s finally here.  We will be teaching students how to customize there yarn colorways to create an entirely unique skein of yarn.  We are going to be dyeing Cascade Yarn Heritage, a lovely sock yarn in a  sturdy blend of 75% superwash merino and 25% of nylon means your socks will last, and be easy to care for, but also soft!  This class will teach you the basics of yarn dyeing with only a few simple ingredients and no mess.

The class is $25 and will be held Friday, May 30th from 1:00pm-4:00pm.  All the supplies are included in the class students only need to bring a crock pot to dye in, the dye is chemical free so you can still use your crock pot to cook ;).  Students will need to sign up and pay for the class by Thursday, May 29th because of the soaking prep work that has to be done to the yarn prior to the class.  I am also encouraging people to bring projects to work on while the dye sets up, the process takes a little while so we will be chatting and knitting between steps.  This is going to be fun, I can’t wait to see everyone’s different colorways!  -B

Baktus Lace

This triangular shaped quick knit is the perfect light weight accessory for your summer wardrobe.  It’s open, airy, and knit out of Feza Sinful, a new 100% plied silk yarn.  You only need one skein (188 yards) and size 7 needles and the pattern is a free download on Ravelry just click here.  This would also be a great first lace pattern for someone who is wanting to try something with some yo and k2tog, as long as you are able to keep track of your rows this is a simple knit.  You might be asking, how should I keep track of my rows? Do I need a row counter?  I am a firm believer in just making tick marks.  Of course everyone has what works best for them and I believe that in whichever craft (knitting or crochet) people should just use what works best for them.

The new Sinful from Feza is a great silk yarn.  The colors are really vibrant which will make your project stand out and I love the fact that the yarn is plied.  This will help keep the silk fiber from pilling after you wear it a few times.  If you aren’t sure if this is the project for you and you need some instruction, I will be teaching the class this Friday, May 9th from 12:30pm-2:30pm, so call the shop to sign up! -B
