A friend of mine has a signature – “There is no path. Paths are made by walking.” I think that fits the monk’s satchel beautifully. It’s a thing made for travelling, to be carried by one who travels physically and spiritually.
Well, the first part of the path towards this object has been completed. The strap is done – mostly. I’ve got 74″ of seed stitch done, but it needs to be topped by a couple of rows in the Candy Apple colorway.
Here’s the problem: I can’t find any of the damn Candy Apple yarn. So I’m going to make some.
I’ve got a couple half-used skeins of the Putty color (basically white). I’m winding that into skeins which I’m going to dye with some Kool-Aid™ to get a nice deep red. Once those skeins are dry, I’ll finish up the strap and continue with the other panels.
So… anyone know how to dye yarn?
