I pulled the experiment yarn out of its jars, gave it a rinse, and hung it to dry in the shower over the weekend, and look at it! It's so bright right now, with just as much variegation as I was hoping for. I'm pretty sure this will rinse out some more and fade a bit-I'm counting on that, actually, but it's still pretty fabulous right now!
There's about 100g of worsted-weight wool here, so I'm trying to figure out what to make with it-my first thought goes to knitting a hat, but really, I'm in the middle of a hat collection, do I need another hat? (Yes, the answer is always yes.)
Right now I'm having a lot of fun just looking at this yarn-it's so bright right now! I know I keep saying that, but look at it! I don't know how much it's going to fade, but I'm thinking it may dull down quite a bit-either way, as much as I'm a control freak in every other aspect of my life, I really have embraced the relative uncertainty of dyeing!
