I'm a knitter-crocheter, but I figured I'd give dyeing a try since I want to move into spinning and dyeing at some point too.  This was just a simple coffee dye with Patons Classic Wool.  I wish it had come out darker, but I think the intended recipient will like it *crosses fingers*  There are more in-process pictures on the blog, but here are my results!  (Ignore my poor zombie in the background...)

The second batch around the first.  I was trying to get a darker color, but I guess this was all it would take.  Next time, I'll try soaking it in vinegar longer.
