Better

But that brown? Although the water was clear when I took it out of the microwave, it just ran and ran and ran when I washed it. So it got lighter than it was, but it's a lot darker than the sans-vinegar try. I mixed the dye a lot thicker and it just soaked it up - I'm sure the vinegar is responsible. The dark pink came out a lot brighter too (though I'm sure it will tone down when it's dry.) It's outside drying now. I ran out of plastic wrap as I pulled off the second sheet (whoopsie!) and one of my rubber gloves has a hole in the finger (didn't know) so I will make a supply run and then come back home for round 3.

So ok!

Round 2

I've ended up with a purple finger before because of a hole in the gloves. It provided a great deal of amusement at work the next day.

Is that another skein or the same one? Either way, I love the colors! Good job!

That looks great - a lot like Vera from Lorna's Laces. I'm so impressed!

And you're right - I think my Leo and your Fee are long-lost siblings. But I got Leo in Richmond. Maybe they're just southern cousins!
