This is beautiful! Both the shawl and the dyeing are truly stunning. It makes me look forward to dyeing some wool with onion skins! I've been saving tons and tons of onion skins for some as-yet-undetermined project, and I steal them out of the bins whenever I go shopping. XD

Absolutely stunning! I love the colors you got with the onion skins, and I can't imagine having to spin all that yarn on a drop spindle. You did a fantastic job!

I keep thinking about the fact that you spun this on a drop spindle!!  It's totally awesome,  and so very impressive.

You really should try it and with red skins too (so strange that it becomes green!), it's fun and the colours come out really pretty.

It's beautiful.  I was ready to turn in my crochet hooks and just stick with sewing, but I think you've changed my mind.  Heh, I guess I'll get the yarn I was going to return to Michaels back out of the car.  Smiley
