New Toys!

Okay, not really new toys, but a new technique that I learned at my Local Yarn Store this past weekend. I had always wanted to try hand dyeing yarn, but I was never confident enough in myself to try it on my own. So, when I saw that there would be a class I jumped at the opportunity, and I am so glad that I did!

This class was focused on dyeing with ingredients you might already have in your home, primarily unsweetened Kool-Aid, food coloring, and Easter Egg dye. I dyed my skein a beautiful shade of blue with purple and green spots. I have no clue what to knit with it now, but I'll find something.

I'm putting a call out to anyone who reads this - what color combinations (colorways) would you like to see and what would you call it?
