One of my more lofty Fiber Goals for 2012 is to Complete a colorwork sweater. After a bit of thought I have found the perfect pattern: Velvet Morning from Knitty, Winter 2011. From the very beginning I decided that I wanted to dye the secondary color yarns myself for a special touch (I'm going to buy the yarn for the primary color).
So, I broke out my acid dyes and got to work dying some Cascade 220 Superwash:
I'm not sure why, but Cascade superwash is a lot of fun to dye. I'm not sure how to describe it, it's just a friendly yarn to dye with. It always looks great and doesn't felt, but it is fairly pricey.
My favorite one is the gray for sure. It has this wonderful frosted look to it.
I have to run by Webs to buy the yarn I need for the primary color before I can cast on. I almost cannot wait, I'm so excited to cast on!
