Dyed Waves

I'm getting a little sleepy, but I thought I'd pop on and show you my dyed infinity scarf.  I was planning to make the teal and pewter colors darker, but then as I was dyeing, I decided to go with a more muted look.  I literally had all of the colors painted and in place and then I poured a couple cups of water right over them, my own version of white washing.  I like that the colors look weathered as though this is an old favorite scarf rather than a newly knitted one.  It seems a little summery, like something you would throw on for a walk on the beach one cool morning.  

I've started working up this same pattern in a painted, wide nylon ribbon.  The look is completely different, sort of whimsical and fun.  I want to get a few more rows done and then I'll share.  As for now, I wish you a good night!

It's beautiful love that washed out look really subtle and pretty, perfect for Spring.
