Hi,

So I spent yesterday playing around with some dyeing. Working to come up with another new colorway . . .

I came up with one I really, really like and I wanted to share a pic of it with you to see what you think . . [img]http://www.inspirationsyarn.com/1036.660.jpg[/img]

My husband suggested I name this one Cran-blueberry, isn't that cute?

I've got another pic to take of the "other" skein I did, but I'm pretty sure I won't be using that combination.

I'd love to hear what people think of this one, both good and bad!

Hi,

Thanks everyone! I'm pretty happy with it. I've got a big pile to skein up today . . .

Dee, I use Washfast Dyes from Prochemical for all my current dyeing. They work really well, keep well and have a great range of colors to work with. They do require a bit more on the precautions than the Kool-aid and food coloring dyes but if your doing larger quantities of yarn they are a good bet.

off to work on the web pages . . .
