The Bad Batch (1)
I really didn't want another skein of green yarn.
So I popped it back in and tried to add more blue. Got more mud.
So I let it dry. Then I laid it flat in a 13x9 glass dish and tried adding a little more dye in what I thought was a responsible manner. I do think the final product bears some more depth and is better, but it is so far from what I originally wanted.
There is far more reddish/purpleish/burgandy-ish and that's good. There is less green and that's better. There are hints of midnight-y blue, gold, and brown here and there. That is good too. Not sure what I'll make with it. Possibly the cabled footies from One Skein. Possibly a scarf or a hat.
Although if I had to wear this yarn on my head I might never leave the house.
Then again, I could make something really embarrassing and wear it on the 6th grade field trip next week.
Would that be too cruel?
