Yes, it’s still microwave dyeing. I have been knitting with a very nice soft “sock” yarn (though I don’t knit socks) and decided to see whether I could source it undyed. I wasn’t too thrilled with the self-striping nature of the stuff I’d purchased precolored; my stripes kept changing color in the very obvious middle of a row. So after poking around the internet for a while I found the yarn – Cash MCN Sock at Wool2Dye4.com. It arrived last week – on the same day as my new supplies of dye from Dharma Trading (I use Jacquard Acid Dyes/citric acid). In the last week I’ve dyed four skeins of yarn. Here they are to show you.
I will be experimenting with more as time goes on, but this is so much fun. It’s like cooking (which I hate), but better, because I get YARN out of it!
