Sooo..here it is and I am so happy with the way it turned out:woot:Look at the yummy goodness..I think the colors came out so vibrant and blended nicely. I haven't decided if I want to keep this or venture into selling it on etsy. ( I'm not sure my yarn is good enough to sell) It is 400 yards of BFL superwash wool/fingering weight yarn. So so you like it?!

I'm never nice :roflhard:

Why not knit up a few rounds of k2 p2 and see how it looks?? :knitting:

Your never nice lol I doubt that your a knitting helper. How can you not be nice:teehee:aww thanks cyndi for your comments your making me feel like im oncloud9. Ya know I think knitting a

few rows is a good idea and I just may do that. So what does everyone think is a fair price for this yarn if I were to sell it?

i recently sold some on etsy ($15) it was sock yarn ... :) for me, it just depends on how difficult (time intensive) your particular dye job is, and the yardage you are selling HTH
(i really like the colors, btw) I got my package today!! Thanks :hug:
