New Dyes, New Yarns

I got a few more dyes, and now have 2 reds, 2 blues, a yellow, and black. I was starting to run out of my first 3 primary colors and decided to get the black too this time around. So all the greens, oranges, and purples you see in my shop are all from me mixing the dyes. Surprisingly (to me anyway) I'm not very scientific about it. I look at it more like mixing paint colors. I mix them until I have a color I like and then I put it on the yarn! This blue and green yarn has the new blue
and for something that looks newer, for this yarn I used my new black to make a grey and the new blue in the purple.
