Dying to Dye

Well I've just done something I said I'd most probably never do. I dyed yarn. Thank you so much to Kelly for showing me how easy it is and that you don't need much room or equipment. Of course now I'm hooked and I want to dye more. The budget however says you must be patient.

Here are the results of my first dye both of which are destined to become shawls.

Bluegum Haze is a 2ply laceweight merino with 100gms in total.

and Paperbark is a 2ply fingering weight with a total of 200gms. Now I have to stop thinking about dyeing and start thinking about knitting.

Keep smiling :-)
