pink slip

August 30, 2018


This knitting received its "pink slip" a couple weeks ago!  I finished up my #naturaldyekal and am looking forward to some transition weather days to start wearing it!  This was made from the yarn I received in a fiber swap; a wool, alpaca, linen blend fingering weight yarn that I dyed with avocado stones and skins.




I had picked out a pattern that I thought lent itself to the delicate nature of the yarn and was pretty pleased with how it came out.  The pattern is called "Dangling Conversation"  I have plenty of yarn left but and not sure yet what else I am going to make with it.  I think it would look fund in a stripped pattern with some walnut dyed yarn!


I made the small version in the pattern and really liked the simple stockinette broke up by the eyelet ridges that get closer together towards the bind off edge.  I learned how to do a purl front and back increase and the stretchy bind off.

I had discovered the #naturaldyekal from a podcast that I have been really enjoying by A Wooden Nest- check it out!

  1. Your pink slip is incredibly beautiful. I have some avocado pits and skins in my freezer waiting for me to try avocado dyeing and you have really inspired me. What a beautiful color you got.
