magenta to purple: success!

Last night, this:


became this:

I used maybe a 1/4 teaspoon of Wilton's royal blue, and I could have used less.

The camera lies: the first yarn is a brighter magenta colour in unnatural light, and the second is really a deep Western purple: not navy blue.

The magenta yarn is the same I used for my Endpaper mitts two years ago. (TWO YEARS?! Gah!)


It's not really my colour, and I've been trying to find a project for the remaining skein ever since. This dyeing thing. It's addictive and terribly exciting. And now I have a colour of yarn I will actually use! This is only going to encourage me to dye more.
