Vincent


I had a dream about the "Vincent and the Doctor" episode of Doctor Who last night. I thought, I must do something to celebrate my love for not only that episode, which is thee best Doctor Who episode, beating "Lady in the Fireplace" by a hair, but also my adoration and obsession with Vincent Van Gogh. 

So I'm going to do what I do best. Knit something.

I wasn't just about to go out and buy the yarn for this. It had to be special. So I hand dyed it in a way that I've never tried before. I separated the dyes by placing them in individual jars, filling them half full with a dash of vinegar and a teaspoon-ish of dye in each jar. 

I separated how much yarn I wanted of each color and slowly stuffed the yarn in the jars, using a dowel to stir and yarn.



I'll post more pictures tomorrow once it dries. I'm super psyched to see how it turns out.
I also need to find a pattern, or make one, that really encapsulates Starry Night. Something wiggly and wobbley, me thinks. Something with cables, perhaps. Probably socks. Can't go wrong with a nice pair of socks :}
