New Piece: Strumming Teal Scarf

Hi folks,

I am really proud of this scarf. This is Strumming Teal:

Strumming Teal Handmade Scarf | Webster Fiber Arts | Etsy

This one began with dyeing the yarn. To get the mottled look, I heated a big pot of water with dye (in this case, I used Wilton’s Color Right icing/fondant colors) and vinegar and dunked in yarn that had been soaking in water overnight. Then I let it simmer until all of the dye was in the yarn and none was left in the pot.

When the yarn was finished, I had to figure out what I was going to do with it. I started playing with some really tall stitches, but I liked them better as really wide stitches, so I stitched this piece so those tall guys would lay on their sides when the scarf was finished.

Like I said, I’m proud of this one. There is a lot of time and though invested in this one. Yay!

Until next time,
