Lish, having been pretty damn excited about the fact that the water turns clear during the process, wanted in on the action, so I toted yarn and koolaid up to Seattle and dyed away while watching movies and Sunday night TV.
That round turned out pretty mediocre, so there was a second round last night.
A little oranger than the color really is.
It still isn't as dark as I was expecting. I think the silk didn't take the dye as well as the wool. It is still pretty and perfectly acceptable. There is always the option of overdying the finished product once I knit it. It is hard to know how this is going to look once it's knit up.
