My photoshoot helper = dachshund
Andi of KnitBrit and I teamed up with Mercedes from Kitchen Sink Dyeworks to make three of our patterns available in her booth at Sock Summit. (Booth #113! don’t miss it!)
Here is a sneak preview of the “Cultivated” variant of my new Morel sock, which is coming out in the Knitgrrl CSA: Farm Fresh Knits book later this year. Zoe is modeling, but Anezka the dachshund is helping…ha!
Also, if you need help deciding, I recommend voting for Mercedes’ Dye For Glory entries on Ravelry, and for Ceallach Dyes’ solar-dyed entries — great stuff!
My company is publishing Kelley (of Ceallach Dyes)’s solar dyeing book later this year, and I have to say, the lack of agitation inherent in solar dyeing makes for some supersoft yarn…no risk of felting in the dyepot no matter what the base fiber is!
Very nice pattern. Love the color.
I’m so paranoid of screwing it up with felting that I haven’t been able to even *attempt* dyeing yet. But this “solar-dyeing” thing might be just the gateway I need! Looking forward to seeing the book!

anezka reminds me of my late (&dearly missed) Dieter–he wasn’t upset over strangers in his house until their feet touched his floor, & then he would snap at the feet! the pattern is a lovely one. &am looking forward to the solar dyeing book!
