These are some merino rovings I dyed using food coloring and vinegar-


Easter Sunday (aren't the colors just so spring?) about 3.75 oz.


Sneaking Suspicion- about 3.75 oz as well. I just loooove the colors on this one. so vibrant! the blues and greens sort of flow together to make a wonderful aqua.. oh man!

3.) I got a set of acid dyes (woo big girl dyes!) for Christmas but i've only dyed a couple of things and haven't taken pictures of everything yet. But here's one i managed to get some good pics of.

Rosy Red- this one is only about half an ounce. I'll probably use it to mix with something in the future.

let me know what you guys think!

Oh those are so pretty! I've only dyed once and I'm itching to do it again. I really like the last one. I smiled about the "big girl dyes".  Smiley

Yay finally done moving!

Yeah pretty much. My friend gave me the kit from http://helloyarn.com/ and it was probably the best present i've gotten in a long time. I really need to play with them more... she got some for herself too so we'll have more colors to play with!

They are lovely!  Did you use wilton's, or another kind of food coloring?

For the food coloring it was straight up, whatever I could find at meijer. I did actually pick up some wiltons a few months ago and I use them every once and a while. I like to sort of 'get in, get out' when i'm dyeing, and i find that the icing dyes take a really long time to disintegrate if i'm going for super bright color.
