I bought a sweater for a dollar at the Goodwill - ivory, shetland wool. It unraveled quite nicely! I dyed the wool in easter egg dye, and tried to achieve a gradual transition from the yellow dye to the purple dye, but as you can see, there's quite a jolt from the reds to the greens. Each skein was dyed half in one color, and half in the other color, and the skeins were graduated as follows - #1 was yellow and light pink. #2 was light pink, and dark pink. #3 was dark pink and red... and so forth to the last skein, which was blue and purple. I had a great time knitting this shawl, but honestly, I'm not a shawl kinda gal, so I doubt if I'll ever wear it. It was a fun project anyway! If you click on the photo, you'll see a larger photo, and you'll be able to see the color better.
