cuteknitterStep 1 of any color work project is to wash the yarn, separately, the same way you are planning to wash the finished garment. (Yarn: @blacktrilliumfibres Frank-it-up kit, Washed in @unicornclean Beyond Clean)
- completelyfroggedI did not know this
- tangeknitalI just swatch in colorwork and then wash to see if an issue.
- broniah_is_martiDoes the uncaked yarn get very tangled during this process ?
- cuteknitter@broniah_is_marti it can, particularly if you have small hands helping. We added extra ties to these.
- nancy.five.talentsHad to read it twice...you don't REALLY wash each color of your finished garment separately, right?
- moaoline😄 @nancy.five.talents I read the same thing! Since I'm lazy I make a color-work-swatch.
- gingertemple81So if my yarn is in a ball (because it's leftover) do I need to re- skein it to CA soak?
- cuteknitter@gingertemple81 yes, sorry
- gingertemple81Where did you get those buckets? I need some...
- cuteknitter@gingertemple81 they're Treat Ice Cream containers.
- armadillojenknitsI have been so hesitant to do dark color work until I learned about this from you. I am about to embark in a three color cashmere shawl with the darkest blue skein of Madelintosh yarn, that I know will bleed.
