Adding color

Sometimes dying doesn’t become what you want it to. I fought the urge to keep the yarn as it was anyway. It wasn’t ugly or anything, just didn’t feel like it was for me. I tried the food colors which turned into a minthy green. When feelingĀ it wasn’t my cup if tea I tried to darken it with Jacquard’s Acid Dye Teal… But the yarn didn’t want to suck too much of the dye up. So the result was a little darker minty green. Darn it!

So I decided to haveĀ a go with my cold colors (Jeaba) to see if I could make something better! I added dark greens, purple and blue to it.

And tada! I’m soo pleased! I shall name it Star Whale.
