All the Dyeing Puns Have Been Used

Okay, I'm super excited about this one. Back in 2006 I participated in a hand-dyed yarn swap called Dye-o-Rama. I think there were groupings by skill level. I was in the beginner's group. My swap partner sent me two skeins of yarn. One I knit into socks. And one just sat unloved for nearly seven years.

Sorry for the old, blurry photo.

Until this week. I threw it in the dyepot the other night. I tossed in some Cyan and a little Worker Blue* and let it "cook" overnight in my crockpot (that I bought at a yard sale and only use for dyeing). I am thrilled with the result.

I love, love, love, love, love it! Now what to make with it?

*I only use Mother MacKenzie's Miracle Dyes from Judith MacKenzie.
