Covering the Gray

I had this hank of 100% wool in a dull gray-pink. What an awful color!

Here it is two tablets of Paas pink and one of red later. At first the yarn wouldn't take the dye so I put the bowl with the yarn and dye in the microwave for two minutes, stirred and cooled, then zapped it for another two. Magic. I wish life was so easy to brighten!

That is a lovely color. Will the Paas fade? What do you plan to make with it? Something gorgeous, I'm sure.
