I started the shawl yesterday, when the yarn for it, Knitpicks Gloss Fingering in Hawk, arrive in the mail. Also in the box was a skein of Bare Swish Worsted. First I dutifully cast on the shawl and worked a few rows, but then I got out the food coloring and started playing with my yarn.
I couldn't decide on a color theme, so I just did a little of everything, and came out with this:
The colorway is Impressionist, and I'm so happy with how it turned out. I put the yarn in a pot of water and vinegar on the stove and let it simmer for a while, and then added drops of dye here and there until I was satisfied. Then I added some more just to be safe. I hung it out to dry, and this afternoon I wound it into a ball and knit a swatch to see what it looked like knitted up.
I'm thinking it'll be turned into a pair of fingerless gloves, or maybe two because I have 100 grams of this yarn.
