Alright ladies and gents. I have run into a handy number of forums lately suggesting easter egg dye as a fun way to dye fiber and seeing the results totally sucked me right in. The colors were so vibrant and cheerful, I had to give it a try. I divided my BFL roving I bought from helloyarn.com into 1 oz pieces for each tablet (6 tablets total) and let the magic happen~
The ziploc bag for the blue completely ripped and the purple and green were leaking so there were patches of blue in both but spun up, the green looks like turqoise which made me uber happy so that was a lucky accident ^_^
I used this tutorial http://blueeyedknits.blogspot.com/2008/01/from-zebra-stripe-gum-to-easter-egg.html
Oh yeah and did I mention the dye's 100% food grade safe?
Enjoy and don't forget, easter egg dye goes on sale after Easter *hint*
