This is it. The final item from my dyed yarn from last month. Maybe. There's two little scraps left that might turn into something totally useless, so I can keep practicing with small needles, and maybe learn a new technique. Not a great picture, sorry. This is my own pattern, and I really like the texture. Too bad the colors areen't right for me.
I've dyed the second Indiecita from my thrifft shop bonanza, and it was indeed only cut in one place, but nicked through in at least one more spot that I broke off myself. Results: one short length and two longer. My $-store kitchen scale tells me I have hanks of approx. .25 , 1.5 and 1.75 ounces. There may be more weak spots, but I haven't gone over it carefully yet.
I also dyed a skein of Plymouth Galway, wool, 100g, color #104, pale yellow. Dissapointingly, this skein also had two joins in it, but they weren't knots, they were bulky splices. I'm sure when I knit this up I just break them off and make my own Russian Joins when I get to those spots.
I haven't been able to capture the true colors here in The Foggy City. The yarn, the camera and I are headed to Mom's where I hope to get better pics. Meanwhile, although the colors are a little off, the lighter yarn is the Indiecita. The darker yarn is the Galway, which I am very pleased with. I left areas of the original color, and that is what I like best about this yarn.
