Yarn Dyeing Projects: Garnets and the Not-Quite-Apollo-Bars

It’s been a very crafty couple of days, and here are some pictures to report back!

Remember those sock blanks I had for dyeing?

Well, I wanted them to reflect the colors of the Apollo candy bars from TV’s LOST.

This was 2 hanks of truly orange cashmere frogged from a thrift store sweater.

I wanted it to match the garnet beads I recently acquired from a convention. Dyeing it was fun and I think it turned out beautifully!

On a side note, these were taken with my spiffy new digital camera, and so far it’s doing an excellent job!
