I began with two skeins of Good For Ewe Yarns Chord in a pale yellow. I added leftover Easter Egg pellets to the middle and outer edges of the yarn cake. At first I was afraid that the yarn would be mostly brown because that was the color on the outside edges of the yarn cake. Fortunately when I started winding the cake onto the Niddy Noddy, I found lovely variegated greens and golds. I'm loving the dyeing process because of the gorgeous colors that are always a surprise.
Look at that surprising red in the center! This is still cooling so I don't know the colors yet and am excited to see what they are when I wind it up. This was a mini-skein of off-white wool I found in my stash. I think it's handspan (not mine, but not sure whose it is). There was a fair amount of dye left in the pot but since the skein was small, I thought perhaps there was too much dye for too little yarn? Yeah, it's all an experiment!
