Not All Things Work Out

I reclaimed cashmere yarn from a sweater that was so kitten soft, even though the color was pale, pale green, I just had to do something with it.

I decided to over dye it with some Paas green tablets. I thought it would make it a darker green and I could use it for fingerless mitts or perhaps a cowl.

I dyed it in a mixing bowl, then dried it in the oven on a low temp. I wanted to set the color.

But the Paas green was too bright, with a lot of yellow in it. It would've been perfect for an Easter egg, but it wasn't a color I would use for knitwear. I offered it to a knitting friend and she was pleased to have it.
