Blue and greens

I dyed this wool, which was white gotland.
Sprinkling, blue, purple, lime and turqoise Jaguard dye powder over two wet and presoaked (in vinegar solution) skeins laid out on a tray.
Leaving the colours to run and spread.

The result was quite awsome.

However dyeing two skeins like that using the same method, colours and doing it at the same time, still doesn't result in two identically dyed skeins.
One turned out lighter then the other.
So I knitted the ends with the lighter wool and the middle with the darker wool.
Not quite perfect, but hey, still nice.

I used this pattern for a Fishtail Lace Scarf;
