Notes from the dye pots #5

Fresh out of the dye pots this weekend, two braids of fibre.  Both Wensleydale combed top, the sheen is just beautiful giving a great depth of colour.

And in other news!  Clue 3 has been published in Ysolda’s Follow your Arrow MKAL, I have just finished Clue 1, so I have some catching up to do.  I have to make a little confession and admit that I’ve had a look at the spoiler pictures for Clues 1 and 2 before deciding which one to follow.

I really should live dangerously, or at least adventurously, for Clue 3 and not peep!

Lace and Follow Your Arrow Mystery Knitalong

The latest yarn out of the dye pots is some gorgeous Bluefaced Leicester lace.  So nice that I couldn’t resist keeping one for myself to use in Ysolda’s Mystery Knitalong. I chose Deborah, a beautiful blend of plum, violet and silvery purples.

The yarn was still wet when the first clue was released last Monday, so I only cast on two days ago. The second clue has now been released, but I’m resisting taking a peek until I’m finished with Clue 1, nearly there!
