Two nights ago I stayed up well past the traditional bedtime (yes I’ve always been a night person) experimenting with some new dyes that I’d recently purchased. I had a blast and by the end of my dyeing adventure, my fingertips were blue tinged and the plain white alpaca sock yarn was now a rainbow of colour. Anyone who knows me well, knows that I’ve never been one to follow a traditional path when I make something and dyeing was no different. That night, I added colour to one skein at a time, truly playing with the effects of the colour and the dyes. Only the basic theory of the colour wheel was followed, nothing was measured and no recipe was used leaving the final outcome a sensational predicted surprise.
