More dyepot fun

I just love this yarn! Initially it was dyed to a light blue --- boring. Then I tied some resists in it and overdyed it in the coreopsis dyepot, thinking it would turn a variegated green & blue. Instead, the coreopsis is old enough that it is dyeing more orange than yellow, so I got a blue & orangey-brown variegated yarn --- rather ugly for my taste. Last attempt --- another resist pattern and another overdye with blue. Voila --- a great variegated yarn!

This is a piece of Kona cotton that I folded and tied in a resist pattern and tossed in the blue dyepot. I think it has possibilities...
