The story began in September when we had the Procion party at Kicsoda's. We worked with fabrics but the knitting ladies decided to dye yarn. I got a big yarn ball from Ahama so I tried to dye too. I used Kicsoda's bowl and hid my little pieces in them. She washed mine too and on Friday she brought them to me to the meeting.
They were beautiful, I loved them in the first moment. We made little balls (this is all I had.... yes, I am wondering now why I didn't make more...) and they were like ice cream balls.
Do you agree?
The only thing seemed 'makeable' was a short scarf. Kdatta gave me the idea about her short scarfs so I made one.
I tried it on but my B was not very happy with it and neither I when I looked into the mirror.
So I decided to start again with a normal scarf. But the first one was too wide so the yarn seemed not enough. Then I started again.... This is the 5th version I made at the weekend.
It is wide and long enough to wear (I think).
And yes, it is very simple but I like it. (With home coloured yarn you do not want to use a complicated pattern, I think it is colourful enough - at least for me.)
The only problem: the edges. I followed the 'inverse before the last' rule but it is still not good. I really do not know what to do with them.....
