I used Knit Picks Bare 100% Merino fingering weight yarn (440 yds), Kool-Aid, vinegar, water, & a crockpot! DH helped me name the colorway: Fruit Cocktail. I couldn't be happier with the results. :woot: I posted a step by step tutorial on my blog.

Wow! That is a beautiful skein of yarn. :cheering:

I didn't have nearly that great results with my first attempt at dying. If I had to give my first hand-dyed skein a name, it would be PB&J Barf :roflhard: .

I read your blog about how you dyed your yarn. Thanks for an easy to understand and follow tutorial. That is a pretty varigated hank of color and your hubby was great in naming it. It makes me think of tropical punch.

Was the amount of yarn (that you dyed) enough to make a triangular shawl? I want to try this myself, but I want to be sure that when I do there will be enough of the yarn to make a shawl or sweater.

Did you have to use anything to weigh the yarn down so it would remain completely submerged?
