To dyeing!!!! Smiley

Here's - whole bunch more random colorful goodness.

I actually haven't used the stove for any of these, just extremely hot tap water with no stove and both pre and post dye soaking in Eucalan. Someone on another forum mentioned tap water not getting hot enough to set colors without using a stove. Haven't had issues with bleeding or anything and even tossed the skeins in a lingerie bag with a new white tshirt that I hadn't cut or dyed for tshirt yarn yet and came out still perfectly white Smiley

Enjoy!

The first 2 turned out eh. I should've dipped them a few more times to get more saturated colors. I like how the orange and blue one came out but the smaller mini skein turned out kinda gross looking. The sand/orange was all streaky and uneven almost making it look dirty :/ that one is going to be used for dishcloth scrap projects.

The second "batch" was inspired by an old navy argyle sweater I found in my closet from last year lol Turquoise and pink offset by darker more neutral steel blue and gray.

Third group is 3 skeins that used same colors but all dyed different ways or longer/shorter sections of colors or different color order.

These look like so much fun! I can see why you're addicted to it: You're really good at it! What base yarn did you use?

The first cotton ones were cheapie peaches n creme cone yarn, the turq/pink/navy/gray were on some brand ive never heard of until finding a random lot on ebay. Label reads Fleur de Laine 100% wool. The last 3 were dyed on a generic superwash merino worsted that my LYS carries Smiley
