Orange you glad?

So, I've been dabbling, again.

The Dip Dye Method this time.

See, I have all these amazing lacy/scaley/etc. sock patterns that I need something a little more subtle.

Well, as subtle as Tangerine can be.

Here's the mound (20 - 50 gr skeins) of Louet's Gems (in cream) I procured from Connie.


I need Test Subjects, after all.


I felt the need to colour coordinate.


All trussed up and ready to dye.


Can you hear its thin, high screams?


It's trying to escape.


Le petit spaghette


The process is a little tedious for someone (like me) who needs instant gratification.


The dying process (not including prep soaking and prep time) took three and a half hours.


Anyone hungry?


Yarn - in the wild - basking in the sun.


Dyed, dried and twisted.


Re-skeined.


I'm in love. Seriously.
