If you remember, several weeks ago I dyed my first yarns! One was Knit Picks Bare Gloss (fingering weight), the other was an overdye four skeins of Farmhouse Yarns Silk Blend.
That went so swimmingly that I decided to try it again this past weekend with a partial skein of yarn I rec’d in a Ravelry Karma Swap. It began its life as a basket of easter eggs. Ok, well not really. It was Plymouth Outback Wool that just looked like easter eggs:
My intent was actually to see if overdyeing it led to a variegated color scheme something like: blue/green/purple. I used Wilton’s, and following these suggestions which were extremely clear and helpful, had enough dye in the pot that the skein actually turned out a gorgeous variegated blue/blue-green/green. This photo’s a bit lighter than the actual skein, but shows the colors fairly well:
Hooray for unplanned beauty!
