I should really remember that skeins of dyed wool never look that impressive to me, because I find it hard to visualise what it will look like balled up and knitted when still in the skein. I thought I was disappointed with the way my latest dye job turned out and said in the last post I might over-dye the purple. Well, I decided I would just leave it (mostly because I couldn't be bothered going through all that again! ) so I just balled it up last night and.... I'm in love!! I really like the way it's turned out and I think it will knit up really nicely now. I love, love, love this merino supreme! Such a shame that they have decided to discontinue it :( It is so soft and squishy. I really must get some more of the cream - I only have two balls left now - for potential future projects :) Seems to have taken the dye really well. I got hardly any runoff when I rinsed the dye out after *cooking* it in the microwave. With the last wool I dyed (in the same colours) - it was from Bendigo Woollen Mills - I got heaps of runoff (although the dye seemed to take really well. Maybe I just used too much dye last time?).
I really want to get cracking on this wool, but DH rolled his eyes at me when I said I might start it next LOL So I probably should at least get L's jumper on the needles and make some more progress with the throw rug. But M really does need a nice soft pair of night longies with the cooler nights now, and this is what the merino supreme was for. Hmm.... decisions, decisions :) How many projects can I realistically have on the go at once and actually complete?!?
