I finally had enough $$ to get some of that fantastic Ella Rae Lace Merino yarn to make the Featherweight Cardigan by Hannah Fettig. So, I started knitting, and after the first evening I noticed that my hand was dyed…from the yarn…exactly where I held the working yarn and the sweater on the needles! Since it was the 4th of July, I said, “Oh my stars and stripes!” I washed my hands and it fades a little every day. But I keep knitting more and more, and so my hands get “overdyed.” Perhaps this is an alternative to a tattoo?
Recent empty nesters relocate from house in middle of Indiana cornfield to condo near downtown Salt Lake City. I'm the knitter, he's the diner. Together we explore the city!
