new brancher here

hi all. i started my "burning branches" a few nights ago, then had to rip the whole thing once i realized that the slip2, k1, p2over part means i'm supposed to slip 2 AT THE SAME TIME. silly me. now that i've got that all figured out, i've got 8 repeats re-done and i think it looks much better than before (though the picture is all scrunchy).

i'm using knitpicks "color your own" merino that i dyed with kool-aid. the yarn was slated for another project, but branching out made me change my mind, and i'm glad i did.

thanks for letting me play along.

betsy-- your color is beautiful... it really makes me think about Autumn. Would love to see a pictue of it after you finish and block it. I'm sure it will be stunning.

Wow! Great work dyeing! I LOVE the colors. I rarely see any kool-aid dyed yarn that isn't lime green or bright blue, this is a refreshing change ;)
