maybe i am not seeing it right but they just look like stripes to me. looks like she just happened to get them to dye into sunset colors that just seem to blend into each other fairly well. i could be wrong but there doesn't look to be any fancy knitting going on there. the colors are gorgeous though!!
i think it is more about how many packets in the water. cause the yarn soaks up all the color. so if you were to leave it in the water it wouldn't have anymore color to soak up. i left mine in till all the color was gone.
Some people are alive only because it's illegal to kill them.
Stupidity is not a handicap. Park elsewhere!
They call it PMS because MadCow Disease was already taken.
As far as I can tell, if you read further down she says: I used different combinations of cherry, orange, and pineapple koolaid, mixing together and testing the colors on scrap yarn until the shades were right in relation to each other. Then I dyed each of the 5 skeins separately.
One way to get colors to blend from one to the next is to use a double strand... knit with 2 strand of the same color, then cut one strand and add a second color, and knit with 2 strands--1 of each color--for a few rows, then cut the old color, and add the second new one. I've done this with lamb's pride for some felting swatches and they turned out really well (i'll post a pic if I can find one of the swatches!) I don't think that shapely tank is knit with 2 strands though... but you could do it thatway, just use skinnier yarn... that tank os on my 5 mile long to do list. :rollseyes:
