Dyeing and moving

It’s been quite a long time. The flu is over, thank the Goddess (it was a tough one!!) and I have been working full speed for the past month.
I have had lots of work to do, which is just great! Lots of dyeing for the yarn company BC Garn, and plenty of dyeing for my webshop as well.

By new year I got my new sock yarn, which is a 4-ply superwash BFL7nylon (85%/15%) yarn, 400 grams pr 100 gram. I love it! It is just perfect for socks, and for other knitworks-of-art too! 🙂
I quickly dyed up a few colourways in my new yarn, which I have named BFL-Steps. Here’s a few of them:

Colourway "Straw" on BFL-Steps

Colourway “Straw” on BFL-Steps
"Dark Fuchsia"
“Dark Fuchsia”

"Blue Creek"

“Blue Creek”

But mostly I’m submerged in dyeing for BC Garn. Great fun and a good base for my business.

Then I have moved to a new workplace. Not that I didn’t like the place I had, it was just too far away. Not so practical when I mostly go by bicycle – it took about 45 minutes each way.
Then I got an offer to move into a place in our little village, just 200 meters from my home. Lots of space and fine working conditions – I just had to say yes to that!
So now I have been in my new place for a week, and it is working okay. I have to share some of it with others, but that’s fine with me. The fact that I can just walk over to my workshop in 2 minutes is just fantastic!
I have no photos of my new place yet – just too busy to even think of it.. 🙂

4 tanker om “Dyeing and moving

  1. Beautiful colours – I especially love the green! Look forward to seeing pictures of your shared studio when you get a minute … =D

  2. Thank you 🙂 The green, straw, is my favorite too.
    My studio is still fuld of boxes and stuff that needs to find its right place, but I’ll get it in order some day soon, I guess. Then photos! 🙂

  3. Hej Birthe
    Super inspirerende læsning og skønne fotos!
    Er det muligt at du farver uldstof? – jeg ønkser at få indfarvet noget råhvidt uldstof til en nederdel, og er derfor på jagt efter en ekspert, der eventuelt har tid og lyst (og mod betaling:-) at indfarve stoffet el måske blot henvise til andre, der kunne tænkes at kunne hjhælpe med processen.

    På forhånd tak

    1. Tak for de pæne ord! 🙂
      Desværre giver jeg mig ikke af med farvning af uldstof. Jeg har ikke udstyret til den slags farvning. Når jeg farver foregår det jo med pensel og bliver i sagens natur overhovedet ikke ensartet.. Og det skal uldstoffet jo sikkert være.
      Prøv at forhøre dig i FB-gruppen der hedder Farverheksene. Der er sikkert kogen der kan hjælpe. 🙂
