I Love Orange But....

I'm just not loving this shade right now.
 
 
Whenever I look at these balls sitting in my stash, I always think - too dull.  So I decided to change that and overdye them. 
 
So I started experimenting.  Two skeins soaking in soap and vinegar.


 
The results..... they definitely have a little more zing to them!
dyed with red

dyed with Violet
I love them.  They're fun colours now and they are ready to be knit into fingerless mitts!

I like the new color much better than the original. Good for you for being so courageous!
