Whoohoo! they're done! (dyed by me shorties) more pics post #2

I dyed the body of these (my first dye job)- started as winter white Patons- and used food coloring and easter egg dyes. I had no idea what I was doing- or what colors I wanted so it just kinda ended up the way it is. Trim is cascade 220 in the "marine" color. Here are the finished shorties- kinda wild! They remind me of a tropical vacation!



pics from each "stage":







Thanks for looking!

Ill add action shots once DS is up from his nap!

Maybe a couple of months now? I taught myself by watching videos on knittinghelp.com and by searching the craft chat forum if I needed help with something.

It just kinda clicked with me- after a few rough bumps at the beginning though because I couldnt purl the right way at first.

thanks! I can tell you how I got the colors! The dark blue is regular food coloring out of the little bottles, then the yellow and lighter blue were from easter egg dyes. You should get some Patons and try dying it- It really was easy and I never thought I would try it because it seemed too hard!
