Dying the LB Fisherman's Wool

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The accidental variegation. Knitting in one color is all well and good, but knitting in a variegated color yarn is that much more fun AND much more easier to count rows and stitches! NOTE: Next time, I need to wear gloves. my fingers are a bit on the purple side from when I was mixing the dye! HAHAHA. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Do SMALL trials first - 5 yard pieces of yarn first. And keep trying. I did 10 different sample runs before I found the right amount (for me!) of kool-aid in the pot for this project.
