I haven’t had much chance to knit for the last couple if weeks, but I have been able to do a little bit of dyeing.
This is my basic Crayon colorway, dyed using three different methods to get different effects. You’ll see it more clearly when they are reskeined, but the middle skein is done in my Paintbrush technique. The skein on the right is hand painted for crisper colors, while the skein on the left is kettle-dyed for more organic color transitioning and a halo of a deeper shade to set off the bright colors.
Crayon has always been one of my favorite colorways to dye. It’s demanding and both the dye mixtures and color placement have to be just right. But it always makes me happy to see it hanging in skeins and I can’t help but want to knit something with it right away.
