Sometimes I make mistakes, and sometimes I just have a bad dye job that doesn’t measure up to what I can accept.
I have recently been exploring dry-dye techniques, and for the most part it has been going quite well. And on many of the yarns, i’m getting a result I refer to as a sort of “marbling” effect, such as those that I showed last week on the 258-259 and 262-263 Twinsets — light and dark areas schmearing along the skein. I like that effect.
BUT on this Twinset I dyed yesterday, on 100% Superwash Merino fingering, I DO NOT like the obviously undyed parts. It just looks sloppy.
So I am going to pair these up with an unclaimed Phydlbitz Sock yarn ….
and make Tropic-Strip wrap of some sort. And, if luck is with me, those unfortunate undyed bits will work to my advantage.
So, while I can’t be happy selling the yarn as being up to my standards, I can turn the bad dye job into a glorious Something that maybe some one will want to buy. 🙂
