A little black magic

 Remember all that pretty Slinky Cat I dyed up for the LeStrange cardigan?
Yarn in the wind!

Well, I decided it wasn't quite what I was looking for. While pretty, it was too bright, too cheery. I was looking for something dark and moody. So on Saturday, I gave the skeins and nice little soak in some black dye
 
mmmm sexy Slinky goodness!
Oooooooh - now that's some yarn fit for a follower of Voldemort! Sadly, none of this is going in the shop - it's mine all mine! And there's none of the Slinky base in stock right now, so I can't make more. However, you will be able to snag some of this lovely Top Cat soon.
Dyed by me!

Or if you're looking for something with more twist...
Dyed by Mom
Twisted Top Cat. These will be in the shop soon! Stay tune!

Now that's some gorgeous dyework! And yes, I am looking for some top cat. I'm eagerly looking forward to seeing that shop update!

The yarn looks absolutely fantastic! I made my way to my local lys and bought the pattern magazine. I guess everyone is prepping for the Downton Abbey coming?

The bright colors were really pretty, but the overdye makes them flat-out gorgeous!

Wow! I love both the pretty cheerful colors and the darker more mysterious ones! Gorgeous!
