(don't mind I couldn't get the dang thing to lay right for the picture) It turned out super bright which is what she wanted so I'm happy. I had done it before with food coloring but never Wiltons so I was pleasantly suprised.

LOVE IT!!!
I would imagine my results on yarn would be pretty similar to interlock, but I have never dyed it to confirm. That is the cutest thing ever!

THANKS! I was pretty happy with how it turned and the mama I made for seemed to be too.

I just added more dye to the dark. I was basically trying to get close to the lighter and darker ranges of each color, which you'd have to play with your water/dye mix so you'll have enough for the amount of yarn you're dyeing.

The one black was dyed 3 times (I think it was first purple, then a greenish purple, and finally black!). I'm definitely not an expert for getting black, and am thinking about using acid dyes for that in the future. I just have such a stockpile of yarn now that I haven't needed to dye for awhile to try it out.

No Christmas Red? I tried using it a few days ago and had crazy weird results, and am curious as to the experiences others have had with it.

I got a hot pink using christmas red. I don't like how Juniper falls apart, but it is always fun to see what colors you can get.
