amazing picture yarn

March 31, 2017






Hi!  I don't have an April Fools joke for you but I do have something amazing to show you.  I shared this on my Knitionary Facebook page today and most people thought this was a joke.  It's not. These projects are made with one skein of dyed yarn!  The yarn is not inexpensive as you would imagine for something that must be so labor intensive, but I thought my blog readers who don't go on FB would like to see this amazing yarn too.  You can find Artistic Yarn by Abi right here.  Stroll through her site.  You just won't believe your eyes!  The stripes and pictures are best when you knit in the round with 60 stitches--think socks or mittens, but some people have knit tube scarves and they have come out very cute too.

We're running out the door--heading to the beach with our visiting granddaughter for a visit to the goat farm and then lunch.  I hope to get some good pictures to share.  Have a great weekend and don't get tricked by too many April Foolers!

  1. OMGosh, she is amazing; I forgot about her yarn. I think it was probably you in the past who wrote about her? I should have her site bookmarked.

    1. I have never seen her yarn before! I don't know why it's not more popular than it is!

  2. Hi. This is Gabriella we spoke on Ravelry about the Gingersnap Sweater. I would be honored to test knit the size 2 pattern for you. What do I need to do and what yarn will be used.

  3. This yarn IS amazing! It is expensive but I think it must have taken long hard hours of brain work to figure out how to dye it!

    1. Amazing! Yeah, I just don't know how it's done. It seems like a computer program would have to be involved but I have no clue.
