Some Colorful Yarn


It has been a slow week for knitting around here, so I'll share one more dyeing picture from last weekend with you.  This is one of the classic Elliebelly colorways, Crayon, dyed on a sock yarn base.  It's a surprisingly versatile colorway, despite its boldness, and makes lovely socks and shawls. One of my favorite Crayon projects is ModernKnittress's Clapotis.

My personal favorite knit with Crayon was a sweater I did for my youngest boy, when he was at that perfect boy age for dressing how he wanted to without regard for gender stereotypes.  He started a trend for colors among the neighborhood boys. Several dads were not happy with me.

This year, I want to knit myself a pair of socks in Crayon. Something to guarantee a smile on a rainy day.  Since our annual April KAL is going to have a sock component this year, it looks like that's going to happen.
