Dyeing

I experimented with dyeing some yarn that I had ordered online and didn't care for once it arrived. This is Knit Picks Memories fingering weight merino in the Red Hat colorway that I bought on clearance several months ago.
I didn't care for the the light purple/blue (looks like white). I decided to alter it by dyeing it with Jacquard Dye "gunmetal". It muted the contrast nicely and the yarn still feels soft.
A chapter closes. My youngest graduated high school
