how the yarn dying turned out

I wrote here about dying my own yarn. Here's how it looked when I worked it up:

I got the striping I want, but the colors aren't as strong as I hoped. I read up a bit, and thought that perhaps I hadn't used enough dye for the yardage.

I frogged the cloth tried redying the yarn, and got the same result again, and finally figured out that it was actually the fiber content that was keeping the color so light (it's not 100% natural fiber). So I scrapped the project. But at least I know that the striping idea I had works!

It's certainly something I want to try again.

Peace of Christ to you,
