Another Rainy Day Spent With the Dye Pot

Here are some photos of the results of my dyeing from yesterday. I worked on mixing the colors a bit more. I've found that what goes onto the yarn is not necessarily what you get after steaming. The colors get much brighter after I steam them. I'm happy with the results but will continue to work on my color mixing.

I wish you could smell this. As I took the photos of the yarn this morning, this lovely lilac gifted me with its beautiful scent.

Wow - what great colors! I especially like the ones in the second and fourth photos. Beautiful!

I can't wait for my lilac bush to start producing as many blooms as yours. I love the scent of those flowers!

Your yarn colors are beautiful!!!!

About the Glorianna scarf on my blog. I bought the pattern from KnitPicks. It's one of three patterns included in Elizabeth I

HTH

I wandered over from the socknitters list, and I must say I love the way you've dyed your yarn!

You wouldn't consider selling any of those, would you? I've fallen in love with that last one.

If you're keeping them, what are you planning on making with them?

Oh, how I miss lilacs! I moved to Australia from Canada 21 years ago and this is what I miss most. They don't grow in Sydney (winters aren't cold enough), but I did manage to see some rather scrawny ones in Canberra one year.

Thanks for the memory.
