I love over-dyeing!

I just had to share my attempts at salvaging a skein of yarn. The top photo is a skein of laceweight wool that I used to demonstrate painting skeins in a recent workshop. I attempted to break out of my comfort zone, but was not successful in my color combinations.

Here is that same skein, but over-dyed using Lanaset Blue 483. I love how it toned down all of the bright saturate colors, making it much richer. I can't wait to find a lace pattern so I can start knitting with this. I love the tramsformation!!!

I liked the top photo a lot, but when I saw the transformation below, I knew you were right!

Happy Spring Vicky!
