I dyed a total of 3 skeins of Patons Classic Wool (210 yards/skein) using a crock-pot, with yellow liquid food dye, Wilton's icing dyes in two different colors of blue and purple. I tied knots into different areas of the skein and put it back into the crock-pot in order to get the different colors. I also used plenty of vinegar which actually made the yarn soft!
Here is what I knit out of it:
I casted on 83 stitches and knit "away" in stockinette stitch until I almost ran out of yarn.
In the bind-off row, I dropped 1 stitch every 4 stitches.
It turned into a beautiful shawl! It is about 70" long and 25" wide.
