Dyeing Machine Knitting Dyed Blanks

The Machine Knitting Guild of San Francisco Bay Area, it is a mouthful but a great group.  We have Nancy Roberts of Machine Knit to Dye for do a dyeing demonstration today.  She knits up a blank, dyes it in different colors and then unravels and use it for fair isle and jacquard knitting.  Nancy showed us some of her very beautiful colorwork and this is an example.   I am thinking of finally trying dyeing.  I always worried about the mess.

On a sadder note, one of members passed away unexpectedly.  She was very enthusiastic and energetic, hard to believe that so much vitality suddenly disappeared.  We took some time in our meeting to reminisce and tell stories.  It was very touching - this is a great group of knitters and friends.
