YPF au Naturale

Last Monday:
Cpurl to Colleague: Good morning!
Cpurl's Colleague: Did you have a good weekend?
Cpurl: Yes! I went to Berkeley and took a class on Natural Dying
A look of horror crosses colleague's face
Cpurl: Oh no, no, no, not DYING, Dy-ing.... like Easter eggs
Bubble over colleagues head: She's so weird

LCK gave me some undyed sock yarn so I brought it to the Natural Dying Intensive and dyed it in cochineal. So I present my very first (and maybe last) hank of naturally dyed sock yarn. I'll call it Raspberry Sorbet.

How funny! It's an easy mistake to make for the non-knitter. A fiber fanatic wouldn't even have had to ask. : )

The yarn is beautiful. I love the color, it's subtle yet rich.

Funny story!

Great name for that color - it really does look like sorbet! I don't know if I want to taste it or knit with it! But it sure is pretty.

Who would think that crushed up bugs could lead to something that beautiful?

Gorgeous! I love the color and the variations....I love "solid" colors that have a bit more to them.

It's so yummy. And in Berkeley, natural dying would probably be a reasonable weekend seminar. No embalming, etc. Hee.

Hard to believe any ugly old bug could be responsible for something so pretty huh? Good job you yarn weirdo!

You're "Natural Dying" will keep me smiling for days. Hilarious! You should've resisted correcting her and listened for the stories that may have gone around your workplace. "Oh my god!" "Did you hear she's dying naturally?" "Does that mean nude?"
Pretty rasberry.
