Dyeing an F.O. Instead of Yarn?
I've never seen nor heard anyone talk about this, but I have this fantasy about knitting or crocheting something in white and THEN dyeing it. Has anyone ever done it?

If I did, I would dip it into a bucket with the yarn (on a hanger so it hangs evenly) and leave it in more and more as it sits in the bucket, that way I would get a gradated tint from light (top) to dark (bottom) on the sweater.

Call me crazy?
