I did it! I finally did it!!

I've wanted to try dyeing yarn for ages and I got enough courage today.  I used wilton food colouring and some wool that I picked up on vaction to Norway.

I think I am going to call it crocus... I guess now that I am dyeing yarns I get to name them Cheesy I don't know which is better!
Here are some pictures for you!
Thanks for looking:D:D

so pretty!  gratz on gaining the courage to dye yarn!  I can do rovings, but yarns freak me out... doesn't really make sense, but what can you do? 
I love the color combo you used. It was my favorite in high school!  and it's still awesome now.

Your yarn looks beautiful! I love how bright and vibrant the colours are! I've used food colouring before to dye yarn, but I'm really want to try the Wilton Food Colouring now!

Wow, that colorway is so pretty and bold! How did you use the Wilton food coloring to dye these?
