Do you remember the topic of our April meeting?
We want to acknowledge and thank Jenna, member of the Buffalo Knitting Guild and owner of 716Yarn for her generosity of time and talent when she stepped in as presenter to teach the Guild back in April. Her focus was on the different techniques of dying yarns and the subsequent result in a knitted garment. From self-striping to ‘splatter’ dying and all kinds of creativity in between, Jenna explained these processes from a dyer’s point of view. With each different dying technique, Jenna also had examples of these yarns knitted mostly into socks to show us what the end result would look like.
Jenna talked on how she enjoys experimenting to create new, unique features of dying. One could easily get caught up simply in the names of her original yarns. She explained how dye lots or color combinations can be custom ordered through her.
Here are a few photos from that April evening. Also, posted HERE is a schedule of where you can find Jenna with her mobile yarn truck, Knit Buffalo, LLC through the Fall.
