Both on the same day – ‘Yarn to Dye For’ and ‘Dyeing to Knit’ arrived from Amazon, and some Mollydale hand-dyed silk from Purl Yarns April Fools sale. Mollydale Knits is actually based here in Armidale, but I hadn’t seen any of her silks at Black Sheep Wool n Wares in Guyra, and hadn’t had time to go to the Wool Room in Uralla to try my luck. Hence I grabbed the opportunity when it was on sale at Purl Yarns. I was unpacking my mail while a tradesman was fitting a smoke alarm for my landlord. He admired the yarn and said his wife dyes yarns. Yes, this is one of those crazy coincidences – his wife runs Mollydale Knits.
The school holidays can’t come soon enough at the moment. I hope to have time to do some yarn dyeing of my own.
