Latest Dye Job
Here's the latest lace weight yarn I dyed. It's still drying. I can't wait to wind it up to show off the myriad of rich browns in this hank.

It's very pretty!

Your photo is too large though. Max size should be no larger than 800 pixels on the longest side. I usually go with 640 pixels on the longest side myself. You can click the link in my signature to review posting photo info.

We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

I also use Jacquard dyes for the yarns in my shop but I'm always a little afraid of mixing the colors.
