Up until now I’ve dyed the same type of stripe – “Nice Girl Stripes“, about 1/2″ (6 rows) wide.
For those of you who have ever dyed self-striping yarn, you know the prewinding process can be a major pain in the patooshca.
And that’s assuming you have the room in your studio (house/apartment/doublewide) to even wrap around a couple (or 6) chairs at least 42 (84!) feet apart.
I happen to have a really cool basement studio that is ginorous. The family calls it The LaBOREatory. There’s all sorts of room to wrap loooong skeins of yarn, and store a gozillion jugs of various dyes. Plus, my delightful better half installed a flat screen. Now I can flip between Downton Abbey and the NFL. Yeah, I know, that’s just a bit strange.
Also, the “She’s A Little Bit Odd Stripes” are in the works. Ok, not anytime soon. See 5 Yarny Resolutions #5. But later. Stay tuned.
