Labor day weekend I went to Ikea with my mom and aunt to purchase a new bookcase since my book and yarn collection was exploding. This Ikea was undergoing renovation so it was a complete mess, like their kitchen stuff was mixed in with the bedroom stuff. In midst of this mess, they had a whole stack for curtain rods on clearance for 99cents! My mom snatched up six of them for drying out laundry. I quickly realized that I could use one too but for the purposes of drying yarn on the balcony. One rod could hold a lot but I’m thinking I should have probably gotten another one considering it was only 99cents.
School was crazy busy for the last few weeks so I did not touch the 10 pounds of yarn that I had ordered until this weekend, which is a four day weekend for me. So I spent most of Friday dyeing yarn. I love dyeing yarn. I don’t plan out the colors ahead of time. I dye one skein at a time. When I’m done with one skein I decide on the color of the next skein. I haven’t dyed enough skeins to run out of color combos so I try not to repeat a color. But somehow this time out of the 13 skeins I dyed, two of them came out quite similar. I’m very happy with how they came out with the exception of one which I may end up overdyeing it.
I’ll be posting them to my Etsy store over the next week but if you like anyone of them, I’ll be happy to hold it for you, just email me at jane AT okayknits DOT COM.
