Easy Delectable Mountain x 3 from Sew Sunshine

"Delectable X 3"
60" x 69"
hand quilted big stitch white cotton 30wt thread
I finally finished this UFO recently. Several years ago already, I got together with my friend and fellow quilter Jen and we did a batch of indigo and other dyes. I had picked up a thrift old sheet. This sheet was super tightly woven and soft. I tore it in pieces and did some dye folds then didn't know what to do with the different ones. I decided as a background for this easy Delectable Mountain block 3 prong version it would be great. I ...

Crank to Dye from Becca's Crazy Projects

What seems like forever ago I bought entirely too much Knit Picks Bare Fingering weight yarn to dye. I still haven't managed to get through it all. I decided it was time to use the circular sock knitting machine to make some blanks to dye. This is a great way to create gradient colorways.
Step one was to take those hanks of yarn and wind them for easy knitting. I used my Stanwood ball winder. If you're unhappy with your small plastic ball winder, this is a great upgrade option.
