        Thanks everyone!. Sommerfugl I might just have to try that along with my sun tea. I've seen a lot of examples on Chemknits FB page.

        Nice work! I've got some fiber in similar colors (dyed in a different pattern) and need to finish spinning it.

        Carlota, it it some Cheviot, not really meant for next to the skin, or anything like that, but it was a nice sturdy practice fiber. I’m finding the Corriedale much trickier. I yielded about 25 g of this single. Now to decide which way to ply!

          Several people I have run into love their Cheviot. I have a braid of it, white, that I have not spun yet - I see it takes dye very well . . . always more ideas to try out, right?

        I’ve been dyeing a lot of sock yarn the past several weeks. Just thought I’d flash a photo of some it. Other than the solid light blue and the solid red (Knit Picks Stroll solids), all of these were dyed with food coloring products - McCormick’s, Wilton, AmeriColor. Click image for larger version

          Those are gorgeous - I love the streaky bits you are getting.

          These are gorgeous! I especially like the flecked skeins on the bottom.

          Those are so pretty!! The colors are bright and vivid. I love the speckles, too!

        Wowee! These look great and it looks like you've had a good time dyeing. I'd have never guessed they were food coloring; you did a very nice job!

          Thank you! Dyeing yarn is such a great creative outlet. And a huge distraction when things feel a bit overwhelming. I just recently discovered AmeriColor and I am loving their colors.

          Wow - they all look great.

        Continuing to try out new-to-me AmeriColor Gel Paste food coloring. I speckled these 2 sock blanks using plastic forks. They will become socks for two of my sisters. I am liking the AmeriColor quite a lot. 😄

        The results of my last 2 days of dyeing Swish DK for a project. You can follow the progress in this blog post: Bold Baby Blanket. I used ProChem WF Acid Dyes and citric acid, most of them in the kettle, but 1 in a steam pan. I may be adding a little more to the gray one at a later date. I hope to start swatching today.
