Thank You, Sockret Pal!!!

After running a ton of errands, I came home to a red box...... and this is what was inside!



3 Skeins of Knit Picks Dye Your Own
3 Boxes of Rit Dye
1 Baggie of candy
1 Halloween Toy
Needle holders
and a cute card.

Thanks sooooooooo much Sockret Pal!!

I was so excited to dye the yarn, that I got started right away. I used the denim color Rit dye and some of my Wilton's Icing coloring and came up with this....



I'll try and get a better pic... but the blue is much softer and there are shades of fuschia to an eggplant purple along with a beautiful medium blue jean shade of blue.

I think I'll call it Purple Mountains Majesty. Or maybe just Majesty for short!

Happy Knitting!!

Congrats Eve! You did a beautiful dye job with that yarn. It must be such fun making your own colors. I'd love to give it a try, but I have to many things I want to knit, I wouldn't have the time anyway! ha ha

I'm glad your Sockret Pal was so good to you. Have fun with your new mitt and coffee swaps. They sound like fun too.

Have a great day :)
