i have to say the egg dye blues and green are so much nicer than the koolaid. i will definitely have to hoard the egg dye.

Bliss

Your yarn looks fabulous all dyed up! I'm looking forward to seeing it knitted. The color of the Classic Elite Spotlite is yummy too.

Robbyn

The dyed stuff looks glorious! Always been fond of the "riot of color" thing myself :)

I've used Spotlight cotton - I think you'll like it - nice, soft stuff!

Beth

Hi -- recent reader of the knit blogs. Love your lost in the 60s yarn colors! I'm a sucker for tie-dye/rainbow yarns. Can't wait to see it knitted!

Bron

Thanks everyone! I'm still not quite sure if I'll need to overdye those hanks - they dried a little too "Easterish" for me, but we'll see.....I'll knit up a swatch & then live with it for awhile. :::grin:::

Margaret

I love variegated yarns but never thought to dye my own. Wow, Easter egg dye and KoolAid? What an idea and I'll have to try this some day. I'll have to Google and get some instructions! Bron you are an inspiration! I love to see what you are doing and working on.

Thank you so very much for being here. Margaret

Margaret

P.S. I received the yarn from you today and am absolutely thrilled. Thank you so Very Much! Margaret

Beth

I plan on getting some of the Knitpicks yarn and trying this myself. Looks like great fun!

Jenifer

Nice! I just received some yarn from Knitpicks and I'm wishing that I had bought some of this .... worsted, correct? I'd love to dye some up and make a Clapotis with it. Thanks for posting the great picts! Jenifer

Bron

Thanks Margaret, Beth & Jenifer. :) Yes - it's Knitpicks worsted weight and it was fun experimenting. I really do think that egg dyes work better than Kool-Aid...so hit those after Easter sales! :)

Kathie

Such fun with such great results! Beautiful color!
