more fun from the dyepot!

i managed to snaffle some white bamboo yarn at a recent sale! it was around 80% off, so i could hardly say no ;-)

and so a few nights ago i thoroughly messed up the bathroom in order to create these-
Purple mix - Grape, Ultra Violet, Navy & Baby Blue
Blue mix - Navy, Baby Blue & Turquoise
Being a plant fibre i dyed them using Procion dyes, as opposed to the koolaid/food colouring dyes i use for wool yarns :-)

They're SO soft & shiny, i'm really pleased with them.. i just have no idea what to use them for!
