Lily asked what colors I would spin in a yarn remembering my Mom. Blue and white, without question. Mom loved the combination, (as do I) and wore it often. Maybe it was a subconscious choice when I was spinning up the yarn for the raglan sweater I am knitting. The blue/gray/white yoke yarn was spun sitting next to Mom, and I began knitting it sitting next to Mom too. Now I sit, knitting on the sweater, trying to figure out what I'm going to do with my life.
The yoke part is done, and I still don't like that wide white stripe. Here, I have wet the sweater, and arranged it on my sheet pan I use for felting. I mixed up my dye (Pro-Chem One Shot)with a bit of hot water, and started dabbing it on using a cotton cloth. A sponge brush probably would have worked better, but I didn't have a clean one. I decided the one row of white (under the wide white stripe) looked out of place, so I dabbed it blue too.
I then gathered it up and put it in my dyeing crock, being careful not to touch the new blue dabbed stripe on anything else. I made sure there was a bit of water in the bottom of the crock pot, and put it in the oven at 375 for about 25 minutes. I let it cool, then rinsed. It seemed to have worked. Once I have the whole thing done, with sleeves and body in the dark dark blue, I may change my mind and try to dye the stripe darker. It's staying for now.
