to dye for

last night i got a little dyeing done, i forget how much i enjoy doing it. it can get a little messy and somehow i end up getting the whole floor wet, but i get such pretty yarn out of it! :) last night i tried something different, i just used different concentrations of the same color. i like how it turned out, hopefully someone else does too! pardon the bad picture, that is compliments of my camera phone. better pics to come once it's dry. i did get a pretty bad headache after dyeing though, i think it might have been from the vinegar smell. here is the yarn mid-dry.

It looks pretty! Do you mind if I ask what base yarn you use? I really want to start dyeing, but I don't really know where to start!! Thanks!

You are NOT allowed to leave our state until you help me dye some of my roving. Honestly...
