Some More Pictures of Tie Dyeing Yarn

In a past reivew of the eBook "How To Make Tie Dye Shirts, Decor, and More: 18 Tie Dye Patterns" I shared two videos of tie dyeing yarn with a Tulip Tie Dye Kit.  I was recently going through my photos and found a lot of fun pictures from dyeing the cotton yarns that I had never shared with you.  Enjoy!

Presoaking the cotton yarns
A full ball of yarn dyed - I think it looks like a parrot
The commercially wound ball of cotton yarn drying

Comparison of the dried handpainted skein vs commercial ball 
Comparison after winding the commercial ball into a skein.
Time to tie dye some pre knit 100% wool.  Too bad I didn't have the knitting machine yet when I started this project!
After I had added the rainbow colored dyes.  It is so pretty!  
The fabric square wasn't quite big enough for me to get a full spiral, but tit still looks pretty cool.  If I wanted, I could unwind this square and knit something else out of this yarn...  Hmm....
Written tutorials for How to Tie Dye Cotton Yarn and How to Tie Dye Knit Projects are available on AllFreeKnitting to accompany the videos on the ChemKnits YouTube Channel
