Lace Weight Dyeing – Success!

In Koolaid on January 10, 2006 at 5:23 pm

These are the two colourways I came up with after mixing some Koolaid colours together which surprised me a little actually…who knew you could get such pretty colours from Koolaid mixing? They are basically the same colours but one is more muted and the other is a little more vibrant. How’d I do that? I added some red and blue food colours into their respective colours for the brighter skein! The “Copper Sunset” skein (top left) is a little more muted than the “Coral Reef” skein (right) but since it’s lace weight yarn, I think it’s an appropriate colour and would be lovely knitted up as a shawl.

Of course, click on the images to see larger too!
