I'm dyeing...

I enjoyed spinning this roving. But I learned something about my preferences for spinning and knitting while working with it. I learned that I prefer the knitted fabric, when there is less contrast between the different colors of the yarn. White and Bright Orange produced a fabric that was not my favorite.
.

So... when I placed an order with KnitPicks for a whack of yarn, I also bought a single jar of Jaquard Acid Dye in Pink.
.
Couldn't have been easier. Soak CAmpino yarn. Bring a pot of water to a simmer, add vinegar and dye powder. Stir, add yarn, stir. Let sit. Rinse.
.
And I'm pleased with the results!
