Another Sweater Project

One of my favorite designers is Carol Feller.  I have yet to finish a sweater project but have a couple on the needles as well as a hat.  She has a new pattern book available and offered a discount code when it appeared so of course, I had to purchase it.

I then looked at my queue and decided that I wanted to make the Adrift pattern and it lists Malabrigo Lace as the yarn recommendation.

I have three skeins of malabrigo lace in a butter color which is kind of bleah.
It is a single and I decided that I was going to dye the skeins.  I have been watching the Dyer's Notebook podcast and Laura has some great dye techniques that she discusses.  I am going to follow her layering technique and see what I can come up with.  Once the yarn is dyed, then I will start another sweater project.

  1. This should be interesting. For the record, I like that colour(or lack of colour) , but I agree with Adrift, it would be better in a more vibrant shade.
