My first handpainted skein!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I tried handpainting some knitpicks bare yarn I had laying around.  I wanted it to match the ooga booga fabric, it is not exact, but close.  I think I have a new hobby, because I had a lot of fun!

Thank you!  I found tons of sites just by googling,  knitty.com has a good tutorial.  Check it out, it is not hard at all, you can do it!  I even sold a skein in my etsy shop!  Right now I am knitting the yarn pictured in my original post into shorties for my ds.  The ooga booga fabric is going to be a shirt to match, that is, if I can pull myself away from dyeing long enough to sew!
