Spring Jewel

Here are pictures of my second yarn dyeing project. I used the leftover dye from my “First Day of Spring” color way and added a green and blue Easter Egg dye pellet. I absolutely LOVE the tonal coloring in the skein.  I used the same base, Knit Picks Bare Fingering Weight yarn since I plan on using the two colors, plus a third not yet dyed, to make a shawl.

I had very little color bleed out of the yarn as I washed it with some Soak wool wash.

Here is the yarn wound into a skein

This picture shows the yarn a tad bluer than it really is but you can see the different shading.  I am ecstatic how easy it is to turn bare yarn into something so pretty!

As I was twisting this yarn into a hank, I had my third yarn simmering away.  You’ll see that in my next post.
