Amaranthine Fibres (Morgan)  Canadian maker of hand dyed yarns and fibre. Knitting, spinning, dyeing and dog. SHOP IS NOW LIVE!

Feeling like I just levelled up πŸ‘†πŸŽ² in my dyeing skill attribute! Forgive the super nerd talk πŸ‘“, I'm just crazy excited that my first dip into colour-matching yarn to fabric was a success. I've wanted to hop on the mustard train πŸšƒπŸšƒ since forever but I could never find a shade that didn't make me look pasty AF πŸ‘» Finally found THE ONE at Walmart of all places! Now that I've found my perfect shade of gold I need a million accessories to match 😁😍
STAY GOLD PONYBOY will be added to the shop this weekend!

We're back in Toronto but my πŸ’œ is still north on the Canadian Shield. Before leaving, I couldn't resist snapping one last shot of Dino 🐾 in his handsome sweater. August weather really is perfect: 🌞 hot in the day and fresh cool nights πŸŒ™
It's been a great vacation but I'm ready to hit the dyepots again and prepare for what's coming this fall. πŸπŸ‚

For the past 2 days Dino has been trying to drain the lake 🐟 He's obsessed with the bathtubπŸ› plug at home and steals it regularly, and he is convinced there must be one here too! Poor doggo, there are only snails 🐌

Ending a day of knitting lakeside with the same number of rows that I started with. 🌊 Feeling a bit like Penelope with her infinite weaving in The Odyssey, but instead of worrying about it I look forward to another day tomorrow to enjoy the loons 🐧 and herons 🐦 and cicadas 🐝 (aren't they just the best summer music?) Feeling so peaceful that my stitch count is the farthest thing from my mind πŸ’•

Most people call it a glove box, I call it a yarn bowl 😁 Road tripping to my mom's cottage means lots of uninterrupted knit time. Casted on the #javawrap again in a new colour, staying true to my promise to break my addiction to blue. I'm loving this pink gradient, it reminds me of back when I had pink hair... I might just have to dye to match the finshed shawl!

I really love the subtle tonal shifts of 🐬Cerulean 1990 πŸ‹. I think this is going to be my "it" colour for fall πŸπŸ‚πŸƒ

Working on a pair of gloves this evening in a new colourway: πŸ‹ Cerulean 1990 🐬. I'll be adding this to the shop next week, my partner claimed the two skeins already dyed for himself when he saw the colour 😍 It's my first time doing gloves! Many digits = much DPN = 😡
Sport weight yarn is so perfect for early fall accessories, don't you think? Not too thick and not too thin, it's the Goldilocks of autumnal yarns! πŸ¨πŸ‘ΈπŸΉ

🌈🐎 Pegasus Posse still capturing my ❀. I'm sorting through locks this evening and trying not to get distracted by the personal-project yarn that just showed up...

🐐Kid mohair is my new fave fibre to dye! It takes the colour so well and vibrantly, even when they're pastels

Pegasus Posse is now available in the shop ( #linkinbio ), available in 1oz increments. I've got lots more locks so if you're looking for a whole skein's worth of spinning just let me know!
