We had snow!

We had some wonderful snow over Christmas. well, i say over Christmas - i mean before but it was still here on Christmas day. So magical for the kids! So i thought I would share a few pics

Another soaker knitted

This is just a practice one...will still have a use for it though for Mia. I really wanted to practice some techniques. I've added in short rows to the pattern and eyelets into the waistband. I also needed to practice kitchener stitch and picking up stitches for leg cuffs. i have to admit I was very tempted to crochet the leg

More wool

The brown turned a russet red where it met with the purple. Looks fab. I love this colourway.

Ok so here is the next lot, the same batch of dye different amounts of colour on the skein and cooked for a lot longer to try to get the brown a little darker - we still got a russet colour in there. This just shows how reactive on unreactive dye can be on wool. The wool was also soaked overnight in fixer to try to get a better fix on the darker colours.

Going to dye more similar colours in a different way again. as I am just loving this colour combination.
