WIP-it Wednesday

Here are some of the things I've been working on this week:

Speckled gradient cowl finished #knitting

I tried out a new dyeing technique I'm calling "Speckled Gradient." I knit a simple cowl using a skein of my Elf Worsted MCN. I like it but the dyeing can use a little work before it's ready for release. I still need to weave in ends and block this one too.

#havendgs blocks are starting to arrive! @cyclingjanes @shaunaluana

Ok, so technically I'm not actually working on this one yet but it sure is fun to collect the Haven do.good.stitches blocks arriving this month. I can't wait to receive them all and get to work.

I've been free motion quilting. I basted 3 quilt tops last week and 2 of them are done. Of course I left the most complicated one for last.

Indigo #dyeing #naturaldyeing

and finally, on Sunday I turned a bunch of yarn blue. now i'm in the process of overdyeing some of the blues to see what else I can come up with. so far it's not going that well but I will keep trying.

linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced.


  1. Beautiful dyed yarns! Can't wait to see your bee quilt all put together :)

  2. Wow, that speckled gradient look is super cool! I'm always excited to see what you're up to!

  3. I really like that speckled gradient!

  4. I really like the speckled gradient cowl! Very subtle.
    Sounds like you're going to have a bunch of finished quilts to show over the next few weeks too!

  5. Love those bee blocks. What great colours. And that cowl looks great, love the colour graduation.
