I unravelled my husband’s sweater. The colour of the yarn was whitish and we decided to darken it.  Choosing the colour wasn’t easy, but finally purple it would be.
I added some  black to the dye bath to soften the purple a little and the dyeing process was started.
However I didn’t give the water (with added black dye) a proper stir  and the final result was two skeins with black parts. That didn’t make me happy 🙁

How would it show? I knitted a sample and well it wasn’t that bad.So now I had to dye all other skeins with some black too. It was a huge job.  First I stamped
the black dye into the yarn, then wrapped each skein in cling film and put it on steam.
Fingers crossed that I did the right thing….
Next step is to find me a nice knitting pattern
