Here it is!

Here are all three skeins, hanging to dry. I dyed these on Saturday.

...turned into this. This was the first skein. I think I was a little stingy on the dye because I knew I had two more skeins to dye, and wanted to make sure I had enough (mixed up) for all of them. I could have mixed up more dye, but didn't want to.

...turned into this. See the pinkish/purple? In real life it pretty much looks purple. That's from the blue that I used. It "bled" and turned this purple-y color. It looks cool.

...turned into this. This is the third skein I dyed. I used plenty of dye on this one. This is the yarn I'm going to be sending to my Dye-O-Rama Swap pal. She wanted water-y colors for a certain pattern. I like it. Again, it reminds me of the colors in the water around the Florida Keys. I was born in Key West (although, we only lived there til I was about a year old), so that's one of my favorite water examples.

Well, I hope you enjoyed my dyeing. I am now out of dye-able yarn, so I won't be doing any more for a while (I have the QP's school AND her summer day camp to pay for - which doesn't leave me with too much yarn money!).

Today, I'm putting away our fall/winter clothes. It's been in the high 80's and 90's here all weekend (and Monday and yesterday). Very yucky! It wouldn't be too bad if it weren't so damn humid, too! Oh well. This is how the weather is in Pennsylvania.
MAKE it a great day!

The yarn you dyed is stunning. It does remind me of the water around Key West.

Wow... just the sort of colourways that I love. Those blue tones are gorgeous together. What are you going to make out of them!?
I'm just breaking out the winter woollies as winter is upon us in this part of the world, and I am hoping that next year I will have more winter woollies!
