Here's a wee bit of the faded Easter egg dye yarn. Really not that bad although certainly what I was trying for. The best part is the yarn. OMG it's so nice to work with. Soft and it just sort of goes where it's supposed to. I know...that doesn't make a lot of sense but it's the only way I know how to describe the feeling. The swatch is done on #2 dpns with those rubber stoppers on the end so I could just knit a str8 swatch. Heh, I'm swatching. Now if I only knew what to do with what i know. I'm thinking this is going to involve math. :::running and hiding::: So if I measure around my ankle, and divide that by how many stitches are in an inch....no wait. I measure to determine how big around it needs to be, and then if it's ohhhh say 10 inches..(cause that's easy to multiply) and there are 7 stitches to the inch (cause that's how many there are) then I would need 70 stitches to go around. LOL I just love thinking out loud. I have a bazillion yarn labels in my bag but not one that went to this yarn. It's pretty skinny so maybe it's sock yarn. Hey, maybe if I go to Knitpicks I can find out how many stitches each of the dye-it-yourself yarn is supposed to make. errm...I don't know if the needle size matters. Oh well, we shall see.
