Pumpkin Wool


 pattern by Cheri Payne

 when this pic showed up on Pinterest
the other day I knew I had to dye some
pumpkin wool 

it  is one of the few patterns of Cheri's I don't have
but that's okay
I have dozens so can make do with 
her other cat and pumpkin designs...
 


the pumpkin wool took two tries
first dye bath resulted in wool too soft/light for my taste
 redyeing made all the difference

the blue came out perfect the first time
#66 from Barb/Emma Lou's book

2 pots of green on the stove now
with 2 more to go later when the pots are free

It's a beautiful day here
very much like fall

Enjoy your day!
