The dye experiment turned out much better than I expected when the wool was still in the pot. The first photo shows the yarn outside yesterday--
Here is the finished yarn after winding. One ball is quite a bit lighter, but it should be fine when worked up into the kid-size sweater I have in mind. The skein of yarn on the bottom of the pot was the darker of the two.
This was fun and I will definitely be trying it again. Next time, I won't load up the water with so many different colors.
