Early last month, shortly before my last surgery, I dyed up a collection of Superwash Merino worsted wt. yarns. One Twinset in particular, tickled me all along the way, as it reminded me of melted crayons as I sealed up the pouch, and the person who ended up buying that Twinset was kind enough to send me a couple pictures of these skeins being knitted up. It is rare that I get to see the finished results of my work, so I am happy to share it with you. Thank you, Annie! 🙂
Here is what tickled me at the start, the Twinsets as it was sealed in its pouch before it went into the steamer:
And here it is after coming out of the steamer, the pouch burst, and the Twinset initially rinsed before going to the wash-rinse-spin cycle:
After the wash-rinse-spin, it was put up on the rack to dry, along with the rest of that week’s collection; here I have isolated the Melted Crayon Twinset for better viewing:
And then, of course, it had to be reskeined and labeled:
And now, I can show two pictures of how it is knitting up (pictures used with permission) by Annie.
I LOVE how there are just small blips of color, not a lot of pooling or striping. Can you imagine a pair of socks, sweaters, scarves, or even a whole baby blanket done up like this? No need for intricate stitching, you can let the yarn do the work to come up with a unique project!
This is a technique I will definitely be using in the coming year. My first task, of course, is to try this on Phydlbitz Sock, and hope it works as well as it did on the worsted weight here.
