more yarn...

yesterday was a good day, i dyed some sushi yarn and some fabulous other yarn... i love this orange/red/purple colorway...mmmmmm

this particular technique leaves some light/white strands behind... and i LOVE that.
the colorways look bright and clean because of the shade variation, i think...
Prairie Soliloquy... was dyed with the same technique

I also dyed this: No Room For Cream Yarn with the same technique, only i over dyed all the white parts ... love it! i love the orangey and carmely shades... looks yummy!
I also dyed some Sushi Yarn! these are just fun, with long color stripes
two turned out surprisingly similar... even tho i thought they would be much different than they are...
and then there's this lovely orange-y one:
they're all dyed so that one could knit a sock from each end, and they would match!
overall it was a good day...
and tomorrow... there'll be more to show! some yummy teal and purple, and more!

These are all lovely! But I must say that I think "No Room for Cream" is my fav. You totally nailed it with the "caramel" description. Mmmm!
