I made a second attempt at dyeing yarn with Wilton's icing dye. This skein turned out much better than the first, and the results were more or less what I was going for. I used leaf green, sky blue, and lemon yellow. I wish I'd done two yellow sections rather than one, because the yellow dye works very well. To avoid the splotchy, polka dot effect I experienced last time, I used almost boiling water (I heated the water in a tea kettle and then mixed it with the dye and the vinegar in a Pyrex measuring cup before pouring it into my squirt bottles). I also tried not to pour the little globs of dye at the bottom of the Pyrex cup into the bottles. I ended up with almost no splotchy spots. The other thing I did differently this time was I used much more of the dye gel which is probably why the colors are so much more vibrant than my previous attempt. I've got another skein soaking and I'm off to Michael's to get more colors.
