AUTUMN CHANGES

I am especially pleased with these. They are the result of my first adventure with home dyeing. I used Kool Aid and I used a syringe to drop the colours on DRY yarn.I then wrapped in cling film and nuked for several minutes.






The yarn is 80% Merino and 20% Bamboo, probably my favourite mix. I knitted it on 1.75mm Hiya Hiya circular needles. They are knitted toe up using my Andersson Construction Method with the Andersson heel Mach II (revised). I would probably choose to use 2mm needles next time.
