Here are some of my more recent yarns that I've dyed. I've resigned myself to funky colour fingernails for life now.. Cheesy


Spot O' Irish


Purple Rain


Chocolate n' Wine

I've got a few more colours in my gallery on my site (linky on the WWW button)

This is just TOO MUCH fun! Cheesy I've switched finally from wiltons to aciddyes, and once I  got over my fear of the idea, it wasn't too much different. Just that I had to make sure that all my dyepots and tools are now no longer to be used for food. That's ok, it's not like I've been cooking these days - my apartment has been taken over by yarn and dyeing! lol!

Thanks.. I'm getting a great response from these yarns. It's so much fun! Though now I can no longer seem to just BUY yarn - I want to buy it in white and dye it myself! LOL!

Is using dyes really messy?  I live in an apartment too, and all the surfaces are white.  I only dye with cool-aide right now, because I know I can clean it.  I would love to be able to get colors like these! great job!
