Well, it's not as big as some others but it's all mine! At last count I had enough yarn for 5 pairs of socks, 5 sweaters, a capelet & about 2 dozen random full skeins as well as countless bits left over from other projects.
The cones are all vintage wool tweed in sportweight & fingering weight. They were given to me by my friend Kim's mom. The colors are really cool & I think I may make Lucky from Sn'b Nation with some of it. The rest may be destined for socks.
I love all the comments about my elfines!! Debbie doubts the speed at which they can be knit. I swear they are fast! I know someone out there can back me up on this! Come on people!
As far as the kool aid dying went I used the Knitty kool aid dying microwave method. It is super simple & only requires 1 pack of kool aid for each ounce of yarn, water & a microwave safe dish. No smelly vinegar!
Now I'm off to make some pasta salad & go for a walk with my hubby! I hope you guys enjoy your weekend!
No vinegar?? Hmm. Must go review the knitty method. Maybe that's the secret to their brightness??
I have a tiny stash as well. I laid it out on the floor and fit it all into one (grainy) frame! But no one can take it away!
And, of course, your elfines are beautiful. Sorry to post so late -- i was in Kentucky all weekend, internet-free.
Hope the weather is lovely down there like it is up here.
