Skein #2 all dyed up:
Again, this one didn't turn out quite how I intended - but I suppose that comes with practice. What I wanted was a cornflower blue and lime green mix. I used the Wiltons dye that is actually called 'Cornflower Blue', but it separated into powder blue and violet almost as soon as hitting the dyepot water. The only light green I had in my dye box was 'Leaf Green' and I wanted something Spring-ier than that, so I added a dollop of yellow to the leaf green and got the snazzy lime I was looking for.
Here's a close up:
I didn't get a chance to take pictures in natural light so they are a bit yellowed here. And I did lengthen the distance between my lawnchairs when I strung out the skein prior to dyeing, so I hope to achieve the wider stripes on the hats I intend to knit with this skein.
Does anyone have a name for this one?
