Fresh from the dye pot

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted but I’ve been working on building stock for an upcoming craft show in DeWitt, MI on November 12th.  I’ve been experimenting with some new color ways and am having to restrain myself from knitting with my dyed yarn!  I keep thinking, “Oh, that dip-dyed Honey would make wonderful socks or a cowl.”

I’ve also been working on my photography skills and have learned about shooting my photos in RAW mode and then I can more easily adjust the white balance so that the photo is a better representation of the color.  Before I learned that, I’d literally spent an hour one day photographing a few skeins of yarn and trying a multitude of camera settings.  Now, it’s much easier.
