Yarn has been dyed.
Don't worry--I'm STILL not going on a trip tomorrow. However, I needed to knit this BEFORE my trip, so it's still crunch time.
I'm actually making a couple of soakers. A former customer who bought one of my first soakers asked for a couple of customs. Here they are:
This is the pansy soaker. It's Fisherman's wool that I've dyed. (I remembered my rubber gloves, so my hands are the normal color.) Measurements are:
Waist: 16-20", Rise: 19", Legs: 7.5-11".
Here's the second soaker. It's handspun wool, spun "in the grease" to keep the natural lanolin. It actually had so much lanolin that I had to wash it twice before it could be knitted. Measurements: Waist: 16-20". Rise: 19.5", Legs: 8-11".
All measurements are approximate since they haven't been blocked yet, but they should stay close to the same.
These were fun to make! (Isn't all knitting fun?)
