From the dyer
This year my Knit Dizzney inspiration was Dante, Miguel’s faithful companion in the movie Coco. I love Dante and his loyal, sweet, dopy nature, just like a few dogs I know.
To get his wonderful, crazy, color combo translated to yarn I took my inspiration picture into my drawing software. I pulled all the key colors I could (boy he has a lot!) and swatched them together until I was sure I could do it in dye without it getting muddy. It only took two batches of yarn to get it right, and I just love the chaos of it!
To get that magical, “land of the dead” feeling I decided to go with Sparkle sock (75% SW Merino, 20% Nylon, 5% Stellina), and fluorescent dyes that actually glow under black lights!
As a spirit guardian, Dante is full of colors so I overlapped navy, teal, green, yellow, orange, pink, and purple in ways that mimic his wonderful patterns. I hope you enjoy this yarn as much as I enjoyed making it.~~~Leslie Valantine – owner/dyer Lazer Sheep Yarns
