|Adding colour is a bit adictive - its easy to go overboard|
I ended up with enough wool for several knits for the coming winter - two bloom tunic / rainbow dresses, one milo vest, three balls of sock yarn which mum will knit for me as I am not yet up to tackling socks (in fact she has already completed the first pair), some organic cotton to knit a summer hat for the baby and six balls of white to play around with and dye.
I decided to have a play around with some food colouring and dye one ball of the white. I wanted the overall look to be lots of red with pops of other colours as I want to knit a little gnome hat to use as a prop to photograph the baby. I think I got a bit carried away with the colours and there was not as much red as I would have liked but still a fun rainbow resulted.
The techmique that I used was from an article from the Fall 2009 issue of Living Crafts magazine.

I have used this article before and it is simple and fun - A even got in on the action last time.

Just realised that the photos of the wool all balled up are still on the camera. I will have to add these another time!
