That is perfect. I was trying to get a similar effect but scrunched the second time in yellow and everything turned shades of green. How did you get this look?

For the scrunched one (pale turquoise) I used less dye powder for a more faded, less saturated color. Sounds like maybe your second dye in yellow resulted in green because there was still room for the blue areas to absorb some yellow (still parking space in those molecules as Jane would say lol). To avoid that result, the first dye bath would have to fully "fill up" with dye the areas exposed, then the second dye bath would only take in the other areas. Hope that makes sense :-)
