Dyeing is Fun

I love dyeing. As I'm waiting for my orders from Dharma Trading Co. and PRO Chemical to get here, I thought I'd post some things I did a few months ago.

This is 4-1/2 ounces of Acid dyed superwash DK weight Merino. I think it says "Socks".

This is some Superwash DK Merino that I had left over from an EZ Baby Surprise Jacket that I mad for my friend Terri's little girl. Very comfy.

This is some Kool-Aid dyed Corriedale that I spun up and used to make a hat for my hubby.

This is some more Kool-Aid dyed Corriedale that I spun.

I thought that the purple tweed was really boring, so I plying it with some hand spun blue acid dyed Corriedale. I like it much better.

Here is a Kool-Aid dyed hand spun bulky Corriedale that I made into some of EZ's "Re-treads".

Some Kool-Aid dyed Superwash Fingering Merino that became socks.

Some acid dyed superwash fingering weight merino. I really would like to make These Socks by Eunny Jang with it.

Acid dyed superwash Worsted weight Merino. Could this be something that Cathy in Oly might like? Hmmmmm.
