Hi, I'm an Addict

...An addict who has no desire to enter a 12 step program.
The latest results. We shall call them Citrus Concoction and Mottled Cherry. The red looks a little more varying in person.

Drying in the sun

So pleased with this one!
I'm not sure my knitting speed can keep up with my desire to dye. These were two skeins of Louet Gems Opal in Goldilock that I overdyed with Kool-Aid. The yellow bits are just portion I left undyed. I don't have a huge variety of Kool-Aid colors available to me. I did just score a working microwave at a thrift store for $15, so I can see my venturing into my chemical dyes soon. Just need to get a dye area set up outside. Also will need to order yarn to dye! I am having so much fun with this! All the color is going to turn me into a hard core sock knitter.

That is beautiful yarn dyeing. It looks absolutely delicious!

As soon as this house is whipped back into shape I'm dyeing more yarn to play with. Thanks for sharing your projects.
