My hand-dyed and what it's becoming

 Oranges


 Blues 'n Greens


 Pinks 'n Purples



Makes me think: Happy Birthday ! ! ! 


This colorful bit of yarny goodness
is teaming with Bare White
to become
Punky Rooster
I'm joining Knitabulls Podcast/Diane's
Ravellenics KnitAlong
during the Olympics July 27-August 12.
We're knitting monsters during the 17 days of
the Olympics in London.
Oh, yeah, everyone completing and posting a monster 
to the Knitabulls Ravellenics Thread
becomes eligible for the random number draw for three different super-terrific prizes.

  1. That yarn is just fantastic! It definitely looks like a birthday party. What did you use to dye it? I particularly love how unique it is. Your little monster is going to be adorable!

    1. Ivy, have you had rain???? We need some ! ! !

      Thanks for the compliment. I used acid dyes on this skein. I have in the past used Kool-ade and Wilton's Cake Icing Dye, however, I am using acid dyes these days. Though not as often as I'd like.

      Since the process is the very same with each of these methods, the graduation to acid dyeing was seamless.

      Just wait 'til Camp Loopy is over at the end of August. The lookout dye pot, here I come.
