Your dyed yarn dreamcatcher is genius! I just made one with my daughter yesterday. She's on a native american kick as documented in my latest blog post; http://littleoceanandme.blogspot.com/

Loving the hand dyed yarn & that pretty little dreamcatcher tacked up by my card :)

Anna said...

I love the way the colors turned out! That dishcloth is going to be a gorgeous-- truly an elevation of the everyday object.
Looks like you mix your own colors, but would you mind sharing what sort of dye you use?

jenny gordy said...

I used Jacquard Procion MX, but that's really more for fabric. I think Jacquard makes ones specifically for yarn. I just used what I had on hand and mixed my own colors.

jenna said...

beautiful! and i love the kitty participating! :)

Ella said...

Very pretty colours - you'll have the loveliest dishcloths in Iowa :)

Sarah said...

It's very pretty! I love the dream catcher.

Sleepy Darlings said...

that color combination is so striking on the white, such a great dreamcatcher! Did kitty get any spots of dye on its white fur? thats always entertaining...

Thanks!

That looks like so much fun. And peaceful. I've always wanted to learn/try dyeing yarn or fabric, but I'm afraid I'll have stains all over the floor and my clothes, haha.

the dreamcatcher shows off the yarn perfectly.

Dominique Elizabeth said...

I really love this and the colours are so beautiful, I especially love the dream catcher. Would you be able to do a tutorial on how you dyed the Yarn?

S@sha said...

That's cool. Is it cotton yarn?

Darcy said...

I've thought of dyeing yarn lately and this is a great push! Do you have a particular dreamcatcher tutorial you go to?
