Dye-O-Rama

So I finally got my hands back in the dye pot and came up with this.


The first two are for my dye buddy and I've named that colorway Bejeweled. I used Dale Baby Ull and it took the colors great. Oh, for the dyes itself, I used Wilton's.The next is called Jubilee and there's about 50 g of that. I guess I can make a pair of footsies with it or something. The last colorwa y I didn't name yet.

all 3 are very pretty. How about Bouquet for the unnamed skein. It reminds me of one of those pretty bouquets you give your mom on mother's day.

Excellent job!

Although not part of the dye-o-rama, I've been lurking and saw your lovely dye job! Beautiful colours! I've never tried Wiltons but the colours are definitely brighter than Kool-aid. Nice job!

beautiful yarns! well done :D
Thanks for the strawberry tip, btw. Sadly, strawberries ripen no further once picked :( I'm helping them along with some sugar ;)

You've done truly amazing work lady! Dying yarn is not something I would be willing to even try, so I really give you credit for not just trying, but being so successful at it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and sending good wishes. I need to get down to our meeting again soon. Will try hard.
