First Yarn, First Dye
I have fallen in love with spinning! I think I like it better bare, but I wanted to try dying. I used Wilton food coloring, Royal Blue. I like the way it came out variegated, even though that wasn't the plan.

LOL!! Thanks! I'm sure this will be "one-of-a-kind" yarn. I'll never be able to duplicate it.

I'm planning to make a hat with it, but haven't started yet. It will have to be a plain pattern to show off all the beautiful colors and the texture of the yarn. :D
