Triple Take

I haven't managed to get much knitting done this past week after our quick trip to Colorado. I finished the first Anemoi mitten and am now on the second. That's it. I didn't even manage to get a huge batch of yarn done for the store since I decided to play with a new dyeing technique instead...

Its sort of a combination of techniques; a little bit of handpainting while immersion dyeing. I'm calling the colorways that fall under this category, "Triple Dyes". In most cases I started with a light color, then added two more shades of something that would complement the original color. These additional colors were poured, squirted, splotched and handpainted on. Don't you love my terminology?! In some cases they came out looking like a toned down variegated colorway, while others looked more like a "Not So Solid" (NSS) shade.

Some favorites:




I have 10 different colors to post tomorrow in the store. Some, hopefully finished knits will be coming soon!

Wow, I really love all those colors. And speaking of loving colors, I was thrilled with the first shipment of the yarn club! I haven't had a chance to knit with it yet, but it's so pretty! =)

Great colors, Dani. I love the rose/brown and the blue with a bit of green. The shades of light green looks lovely, too. As usual, I NEED some.

I absolutely love your colors.. Any chance you'd consider selling some superwash sportweight or even worsted?

I just got my package with the Decadent triple dye colorway yarn, and it is even more stunning in person! You do such beautiful work.

And if you felt like dying and listing some more triple dye Grapes colorway, I might not be able to keep myself from buying some...
