Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Fiber Arts–Day 40

Dyed Double Stitch Cowl
Dyed Textured Lace Scarf

These scarves should look familiar. They are both from the book 50 garter stitch gifts to knit and were seen in the natural ecru and fawn earlier.

I took Kathy Kenworthy’s advice and dyed them teal. Usually have difficulty with this color not bonding completely and bleeding. Not this time!! I used 0.75 teaspoon of the dye and 1.5 teaspoons of citric acid and the dye water was clear at the end of the time in the pot. Hallelujah!!

Today was exceptionally busy because one of our fainting goats had twin girls a couple of evenings ago and is not making any milk. We’ve been working on bottle feeding and made a trip to the vet today to get them checked and some advice. A change in nipples and letting them go longer between feedings is getting us in the right direction. Fingers crossed!!

See you tomorrow.
