Busy Crafty Katie

Like I said, I've been dyeing a lot of yarn lately.

Just add dye, steam set,

And knit, knit, knit!

It's not done yet. It still needs it's ribbing on the sleeves.

I was dyeing yarn for my etsy site, and I fell in love with this colorway. I was just so thrilled with how the colors all worked together to create an almost heathered knit. I'd also been wanting a shrug to keep off the fall chill, so I decided it was time to put my crafty where my mouth is and knit up a shrug with some of my own yarn.
I had considered the glampyre knits one skein wonder, and although I like it, I wanted something with a little more coverage. Also, I dye my yarns in a two skein dye lot (right now), so I created my two skein wonder. It takes about 400 yards of worsted weight yarn. I knit it in about 12 hours of knitting, so it is an awesome project for a long weekend, or a fall vacation.

I'll be writing up and publishing a pattern in the coming weeks. Squeeee.
