Still as part of my spring cleaning jag started late last month, and a general knitting funk, I have been sorting out yarn, and organizing them----helped by buying a 2 pack of 9 volt batteries, (1 for smoke alarm)-- the other for my electronic scale.
So 100 gm balls of yarn have been weighed (my apartment is, like many centrally heated ones, some what dry, so my 100gm balls of yarn (which have not been stored at some fixed humidity ) often weight 98 gm--and divided into 48 gm balls. (here are most of them)
Other bits and pieces of skeins got rewound, and some got paired up so that there is at least enough yardage for a pair of socks.
I had enough of this Koigu to make an other sock--but not another pair. But with a peach solid for toes/heels/cuffs, I will have a different pair of socks.
I have 3 more balls of the lighter blue, (2 of 1 dye lot, 1 of a different dye lot)
I could have made a third pair of socks using the odd dye lot ball, but--it really was a different dye lot.
Hot bright colors, (hot pink, lime green, red, navy and white stripes) became deep, almost black watch stripe with a dark blue over dye.
I wonder what other color over dye will work?
Now with a bit of over dying, I can change more of this too bright--and not to my taste yarn into some muted colors.
Of course all this is predicated on me getting my knitting mo-jo back!
