My Dyed Yarn . . . Scarf

Looking at the multiple colors that "accidentally" came out in my "blue & orange" yarn in my first dye attempt (see previuos post), I realized that I actually like these skeins better than the "blue, emerald, & purple (. . and shades thereof) skeins.  The subtle colors of gray, brown, rust, copper, olive, and black against the predominant navy blue color  and highlighted by splashes of bright orange creates a unique colorway for this guy's scarf.  I can see how a new interest in dyeing will be developed.

Smashing!  I love how the colors come together also.  Surprises are lovely!  The scarf is going to look great. Pics of finished project please!

I love the sheep, but can't quite see the colors in the yarn, even at full resolution.

Thanks for your comment.  The yarn looked better on my cam, but came out dark on the computer.   I will do better with the lighting with the finished scarf to get the colors better, I hope.  The scarf is knitting up very nicely so far.

Congratulations! This is really awesome.  Ity's so much fun to see how the colors knit up in a swatch or an actualy project.  The blue/emerald/purple will probably be very cool knitted up as well.  Good for you!  I've done a little swatching with the yarn I dyed a couple of weeks ago - they're very cool, but because I dyed with Kool Aid, the colors are not really my taste, but they are cool, none the less.  (I'm sure if someone wanted to do something for a kid, they would be perfect - in fact, they were dyed for a dye swap, and that's exactly where they are going!).  Have a great day, Parrot.  You did well with the dyeing!
