Yes, no, maybe, ick?
I got to dyeing again and picked up a pack of chartreuse iDye. I'm sold on this stuff. It dyes so well, no streaking and it washes very well. I still have some RIT, so if I decide not to keep this color, I'm going to use the kelley green I have to tone it down.
I know, I have been on sweater overload lately. It was that Lands End sale. It got me. That and I've always had a knitwear deficit. I decided to invest in some sweaters. 5 100% cotton, and some cabled sweaters of cotton/nylon/wool.
The cotton sweaters are all dyed.
Ecru, orange, purple, navy (which is going to be re-dyed shortly, and that white one is the chartreuse one above.
It's been fun dyeing these sweaters, but now comes the real fun, changing out the buttons!!! Because the button holes were so small, I was able to pick a lot of my 20s glass buttons.
For the cable sweaters, I also had joy picking out buttons.
I think I'm going to get a lot of use out of this tan sweater with these MOP shank buttons. It looks fantastic!
Mmmm.... I've actually put all the buttons on the wool blend ones, and most of the buttons on the dyed ones. It feels great having sweaters! I'v e always hated buying them because they were so pricy. That, and I'm not paying $50 for an acrylic sweater. So these are just perfect. I'm over the moon!
Now, if it would get cold enough to wear them :)
Have a great day everyone!
