the croq pot experiment.

here are the results of the croq pot dyeing experiment i tried last week. i used wiltons icing dye in pale yellow and green. in person the colors are much brighter. the yarn was from stickchick's etsy shop. i love it! her sock yarn is sooooo nice! alas, i do not need anymore sock yarn. i have already balled it, but i think i may just list it for sale as the first item in my own etsy shop. there are about 280 yds of fingering weight yarn, pretty sweet for socks of a lil' lace scarf.
