Dye Day - Part Three

Dye Day Part Trois 2011

I had an awesome time back in June when Lizzy held a third dye day at Upstairs Studio.  Picture number one is an interesting test.  I selected some wonderful fuchsia cotton yarn and wanted to test what the indigo dye pot would do with it.  The picture doesn't do the richness of the color justice.  I am trying to see what it wants to be....

Picture number two is wonderful Cascade 220 Superwash Merino that I used Wilton Cake Dye on.  I have no clue what it will be when it grows up....any ideas?

Picture number three is a secret project at the moment....I used Wilton's on this one as well and the colors were chosen for a specific person....I can tell you that it looks wonderful as it works up for the shawlette I am making.....I promise to share more about it when it is finished an in the hands of the person it will be for....

What kind of dyes did you use? I'm thinking of doing some dye work this fall, with all this un-dyed yarn I have spun up.
