This is a Warm Hearted Woolies Plain Wrap in size newborn that I knit for Scarlett. However it was too small so I decided to dye it in this colorway for a mama in our local moms group. She's having twin boys in September and cloth diapering for the first time. I handpainted it in a dip dye look using procion dyes. It doesn't have a name yet, but I used bright yellow and cerulean blue.

Another view.

Some cotton yarn in Wildfire for a Boogie tank top I am going to knit for Jordan. Look for the knit and show next spring. LOL. I'm not even going to re-hank this. It's gonna get wound into balls straight away since it is liek 800 and some odd yards. Dye colors Tangerine and Fire Engine Red.

Some more WOTA that I kettle dyed. I like this one better than the other. Sour Taffy colorway using kool aid colors orange, a mix of blastin' berry cherry & ice blue raspberry lemonade and a mix of lemon-lime & berry blue.

I'm a dyeing fool

This is an 8 gore skirt made out of muslin and LWI in my Wildfire colorway - Fire Engine Red and Antique Gold procion dyes. For Jordan. :)

Cherry Rainbow (named by Zack) WOTA from Knitpicks. This was my first time kettle dyeing and I used kool aid in the following colors: cherry, lemonade, orange, lemon-lime, berry blue and a mix of blastin' berry cherry & ice blue raspberry lemonade.

The other side of the skein.

This one I handpainted with Procion dyes and it is called English Rain. I used Ice Blue, Avocado and Forest Green. Oh, it is Fishermen's wool.

This one is also Fishermen's wool and called Heavy Metal. Also handpainted with the following procion dyes: Black, Cerulean Blue and Bright Yellow.
