Stripey Goodness

It's almost like I knew what I was doing!

The color is still off on the computer, but you get the idea. I'm so happy with the results of this dye, even if the results aren't exactly what I was thinking. I wanted the 3 stripes to be more distinctive, but I'm liking the subtleness of this striping much better. It gives a soft transition between the 2 distinct colors! Yippie! I will definitely be doing more with this "colorway".

I'm going to order more of the bare yarn from Knitpicks this weekend and then play with mixing flavors! Who knew dyeing could be such fun! XD

Oh wow! Those stripes are awesome.

Someday you will have to show me how you did that. I am totally clueless on dying and winding up yarn so it makes patterns.

But it looks so great! I love that color combo too.

Seriously yummy. Lovin' Ice Blue Raspberry Lemonade/Berry Blue/Artic Green Apple combos. I so love that they've come up with these flavors/colors...funny I'd feel better dyeing with them than actually drinking them...

Awesome results on your dyeing. The self-striping skein is very cool...I may be tempted to try it...
