Year of projects- In which you get to see how the dyeing went

The yarn is out of the dye pot, dry and ready to use. It went from this:

To this:

I am really pleased with the colour, it is a lovely red wine shade. I use this colour a lot, in fact I have a hat and socks on the needles and several past projects in a similar colour. It is also the colour I had in mind for dying the Hemlock ring blanket. It seems to be evenly dyed so using the enormous pot was worth it.

Next week I will be swatching for my cardigan, that's right, I am planning to make a swatch! I have worked through quite a bit of the yarn already and still have lots of the year to go so I am going to work on this project slowly in between other things.


  1. It's a favorite color for me too. I love to wear any shade of red.

  2. Excellent dye job. Really love the rich colour.

  3. Beautiful dye job! I'm always drawn to the deep, rich colors, too.

  4. Yay, swatching! ;-)

    And, that's a gorgeous colour.

    Miss you!

  5. Great dye job. I love the rich color.
