So after reading a lot and watching many videos on yarn dyeing I was ready to give it a try.
This is a great video. but one thing I really didn't know is that powder dyes like Jacquard are very concentratraed.
My first skien was suppost to be red and purple, but i used one and 1/4th teaspoons of dye which turned out to be way to much for 3.5 oz yarn skein and the result was a big black mess.
So with that lesson, I went and tried to dye another skein this time with only 1/2 teaspoon of dye which still turned out ot be a bit much. I was aiming for a black and gold.
Oh that looks awful... but there is still dye in the pot so i let it heat set and finish up.
FINISHED. Top the black and gold skein. Bottom: blue and yellow.
