More jelly dyeing and yarn buying

I bought some new yarn! theis pencil roving has been specially dyed for me in 'chocolate' by the knittery.

I am going to make this (the hat) with it:




After the recent success of my jelly dyeing i thought i'd have another shot but this time using 2 differnt colours; lime and strawberry flavoured jelly. I found 4 balls of white cygnet 'wool rich' sock yarn . I am very pleased with how this experiment turned out!


Just out of the microwave:




Soaking ................




dry.........


eh viola! I love this yarn! cant wait to knit some socks out of it!
