Hi
the book One Skein by Leigh radford has these fingerless gloves in them that I made. the yarn is grey sock yarn which I dyed with egg-dye (used for dying eggs at easter time - it works just like other food colouring).



Hope you like!

I do like how the colors turned out. You just used regular egg dye? This may sound like a stupid question but did you use Vinegar to set it, or just use the dye as is?

Hinote1980,

Yes I used vinegar, otherwise the dye won't sit. The egg colour came in tablets and I just dissolved them in a little bowl with only vinegar, no water. It worked!

cheers, rineke

so i know this sounds stupid but..
you set the dye with vinegar - clearly the yarn smells, so do you have to wash and dry it before you knit it up?
btw - great fingerless gloves!

knittingal: I dissolve the dye in vinegar and 'cook' the yarn with it in the microwave (like you do with kool aid - see tutorials on this, e.g. on knitty). Then after, i wash it with dish soap, so it won't smell.
