Ok, for some reason the colour still isn't looking quite right, at least on my computer. I am thinking it must be the flash washing it out or something. It really is peach and not white or light pink LOL.
This picture shows the colour a little bit better, however my cat Tinker Belle decided she wanted in the picture and jumped on the chair just as I snapped the pic. I am just realizing that in both of the pics you can't see the details of the cables very well...but I am impressed with the way it is turning out. It is actually going quick, that is when I get the time to knit...and it's on size 5 mm, and after knitting socks lately, I am seeing more progress faster than with the socks.
Also for a challenge, I added to my personal challenge and attempted to dye some wool with Kool-Aid! The first time I ran into problems, mainly because when I was trying to rinse it I held it under the tap some and ended up with some large chunks of felting that took place. I was a little upset...ok more than a little...and after it dryed some I decided to see if I could pull it apart. Well, I did and it took a L O N G time, but I got it done. I don't know if that will weaken the fibers or not, but I did it anyway. Here is a pic of the finished results.
I'm really sorry that the pictures aren't really turning out all that well...the flash is washing them out I think. The flavour of Kool-Aid I used was Tropical Punch. It was in a blue package and silly me was thinking that it would be blue in colour (to be honest I didn't really think that the flavour was 'punch' and would probably be some shade of red), however I think it turned out pretty good. It all seems to be evenly dyed.
My second attempt at dying was today. This time I chose the cherry flavour that turns a different colour when it's mixed. On the package it showed a picture of cherries and underneath it was blue so I thought maybe that was what it would be...can you tell I want to dye some blue??? Anyway, when I mixed it it was a weird shade that I can't describe other than to say it would be similar to turquoise I guess. Unfortunately, this time the colour didn't take evenly. Some of it soaked up more of the colour and looks a dark shade, nearly green, and the wool that was towards the middle of the skein didn't get as much (I wonder if I didn't squeeze out the water good enough before adding it to the dye mix) and is a lot lighter and looks closer to blue. Oh well, might make for an interesting combination for whatever I make with it...lol
I tried to upload the pics of it, but it wouldn't post them so I must be over my quota of space allowed or something...if that is what the problem is. Oh well, I'll just have to post them another time.
Off to work on my knitting now. Good luck to the other olympians, and happy knitting to all!
