My very own colourways! The ‘Blued Scarlet’ on the right was dyed with Shibori and Resist techniques, and the Multi on the left was Handpainted. I used Weak Acid Dyes for both. They were both “Natural” Misti lace weight baby alpaca to start with. I’m very pleased with both of them.
I have nooooooooooooooo idea what to do with them.
Varigated lace shawls are really not my cup of tea. Or gin. No cups.
Ok i just had a wacky idea; what about knitting a variety of lace edgings, to layer inside a skirt (like I usually do wiith dollar store lace ribbon to make my own petticoats.).
I think that might be perfect.
Either that or it’s the gin typing...

Ooooh, Morgan they are so pretty! I'm sure whatever you make with them will be a beautiful addition to your extensive wardrobe;)

Get the woman another rod for her closet.

Beautiful job on the dyes. Can't wait to see how they "knit up".
