Plymouth Yarn Angora

I dyed white Plymouth Angora using Jacquard Acid Dyes - Bright Yellow, Deep Orange, and Fire Red. I also overdyed a skein of Red Plymouth Angora with Vermillion Jacquard acid dye, which ended up being too dark (and that’s why I got another skein of white & dyed it Fire Red).

I knit the base & instead of casting off just continued knitting the front. This is only my 2nd intarsia project - the first one was so awful I frogged it - and I think the stickiness of the angora helps.

Picked up the back on the base instead of casting on separately. Used the ends to close some of the bigger holes from k2tog & p2tog, seamed, and stuffed with carded wool I dyed to exhaust the orange dye bath. He’s perfect!!!
