I love the tone on tone dyed yarns so for this project I dyed a hank in three shades of green using food coloring liquid dyes.  It worked great.  And the pattern made itself!  wooo!!!

Fun with yarn dyeing!! September 18, 2006

This was earlier in the summer, but I had the absolute best time dyeing Lion Brand Fisherman’s Wool with kool-aid and cooking dyes.  It was so easy!  And if I didn’t like how it turned out, I just dyed it again.

Finished baby afghans! April 1, 2006

Yay!  I have two finished baby afghans to display.  I like working on things, but sometimes they don't get finished so this is definite progress!!  The yellow one is half double crochet with a shell border in white.  The striped one is a basic ripple in double crochet.
