This is the finished ball of wool following my first yarn dying. It is much more muted than I intended.
This is what it looked like still wet just after the dying process.

Yarn Dying

I've just been having a go dying some sock yarn. It came in a kit from DT Craft and Design

The kit has a skein of undyed wool sock yarn, some sachets of Kool Aid and instructions.

It looks gorgeous!

I can't wait to start knitting it, but I must be patient as my current WIPs include 3 pairs of socks, 1 pair of gloves, a scarf and a keyring!
I always think a knitter should have at least 3 items on the go at one time, but 6 means I must finish at least one of them today.
