I have a batch of Cherry over the pale gold base, on the stove right now. I am hoping for a pumpkin orange color. I really love these dyes. The colors are very vivid. The skeins I am dyeing are 4 ounce skeins. So.....This is what I learned. For the blue and green batches I used the large Mason canning jars. The jar was really too full between the yarn and the water. I ended up with uneven results because I could not stir the yarn around properly. On Sunday morning I decided to dye each skein again using the stove top method. They both came out with beautiful even results. I think the jar method would work well with two or three ounce skeins. I would like to try dyeing a couple of colors on the skeins. I have even been dreaming of dyeing yarn in my sleep. Did I hear someone say I am compulsive?

Robbyn's blog. She designed a beautiful "Seaweed and Shells" scarf. She is even kind enough to share the pattern with us. Quick update on my Peaches.... She is healing more every day. Her belly is shaved and her gorgeous long tail is chopped up. But, all that will fill in eventually. She thanks everyone for thinking of her during her recovery. She sends many purrs to all of you.
