Some Sock Yarn

I’ve been dyeing sock yarn.  It’s one of my favorite things to dye.

The yarn I’ve been working with, Juliet 3-Ply Merino Sock.  It’s a favorite — an incredibly soft, 100% superwash Merino yarn.  Although I’ve knit socks from it several times (like this pair of Zigzagular Socks, from last year’s Adventurous April Knit Along), I also love  it for scarves and shawls, because of its enveloping softness.  And, I’m particularly fond of a machine knit cowl that BeckyU made for me.  It’s a lot like this one, with leftovers from her Ashburn Shawl.

Dyeing Juliet is always lots of fun.  One of my first priorities was to dye some Crayon.

And I’ve also dyed some in favorite colorways like Lady Mary, the pale blue and Peggy, the burgundy.

Although it will still be several weeks before everything is ready to reopen, I thought you all might enjoy a little peek into what’s going on behind the scenes.

  1. Happy New Year Joyce! I’m just now catching up on your blog and did a double take when I saw that you had linked to my projects 🙂 I seriously love your Juliet 3-ply, both for hand and machine knitting. It’s so soft and yet still very sturdy.

    The cowl I machine knit turned into an extremely long tube as I wanted to use it all up at once – it is long enough to be a tube top (but will NEVER be worn that way!)

    Looking forward to your shop opening 🙂
