I seem to be making a lot of scarves lately.
Had a skein of cream-colored Patons Classic Wool Merino left over from a swap on Ravelry, and I decided to make myself something pretty Smiley



It's the Yarn Harlot's One Row Scarf, a fantastic and simple pattern, and the yarn was dyed with two colors of paste food coloring, purple and brown.





It's starts of rather pale and sparse and then slowly shifts into deeper, richer tones.



It's fairly short for my tastes, but it's long enough to knot once...or I may just have to use it as an excuse to splurge on a really pretty shawl pin Wink

The colors are so gorgeous. You definitely deserve a shawl pin for this. Truly beautiful. Wisting.

Aw, thanks everyone!

Also, where did you get that Alice book? I collect them lol

One of the States' big chain booksellers, Barnes & Noble, makes some fancy, leather-bound editions of a handful of books for fairly cheap...I couldn't pass up a purple leather, gilt-edged Carroll collection Smiley

yes yes yes to shawl pin. The muted but still gorgeous colors are begging to be a shawl (i also love super long scarves, so that's what I'd do with a shorter one)

So how do you dye with food coloring paste?  I've got a bunch, and would love to hand dye some stuff.  I'm sure there is a link or tutorial I'm missing here.  Could you share how you did it?

Here's the Craftster master list of dying tutorials listed on this site...there's three threads listed under Wilton's food dye, which is what I used: DYING WITH FOODCOLORING - HOW?, Wilton Dye Ratios, and Dyeing with Wilton's...there's tons of info and ideas to be found all over the internet Smiley
