More dyeing

I'm really pleased with this. It's not perfect, but i think i have to organise myself with the right tools for the job, and also arrange Steve to take the kids out for a few hours (or the whole day!)

Love how it's knitting up. I used Rit dye (dark brown) from kmart and the other colours are royal blue/sky blue and teal (cake dyes). I love using the cake dyes to dye, it's fun and not stressful and also requires no special/separate equipment.

Finished! Now what next?

Here's the finished rainbow dress.

I'm not 100% happy with it. A few little mistakes here and there. Too many late night knitting sessions whilst watching sex in the city.

Today i received some GORGEOUS yarn called 'mint splice' from

Now i need to surf ravelry and figure out what i'm going to do with it.

Another rainbow dress

This one is a size 9mths.
The colour of the bodice is actually a pale mint green. It looks a bit grey in the photos.
The bodice is cleckheaton country and the skirt is my hand dyed yarn (can't remember which brand)

Pattern is on Ravelry (by Georgie Hallam - Tikki)
