On the needles, February 21, 2014

I started a new project. This is just something springing out of my head. It is a knitted version of a Happi Coat. I am using some hand dyed yarn that has been in the stash for several years from Cherry Tree Hill called Potluck. There are 6 skeins in a potluck and only those six skeins will go with each other.

There is a lot of dye on this yarn. It is crocking (rubbing off) onto my hands and the knitting needles. I will have to deal with that when I am finished.

Speaking of finishes, I have some. I can't show them right now since I do not have photos. I will try to do a knitwear photo shoot. Soon.


  1. Very pretty color. What will you wash it with to set the dye, vinegar?

  2. Oh, I love the yarn!

    Do you have a link to the pattern or is it one of your own making?

  3. The colors in the yarn are beautiful. I usually set the colors with vinegar too, but you'll still probably have a lot of green water if it's rubbing off on your hands and needles now. What are you going to do? I'm interested in seeing the pictures of your projects.

  4. Love, love, love the soft variegated colors; can't wait to see the Happi results.
