Dyeing and a much needed panta

I had my first real go with dyeing the other day. I was stuck at home with the flu and felt a little better, so I pulled out the kool-aid and vinegar and produced this yarn. Its lion brand wool, so not too expensive for my first trials of dyeing. I think it turned out really well, except now I have this little tiny odd-ball of yarn in valentine's day colors. I don't even really like valentine's day. It must have been the fever that made me do it ;)

And look! A panta. Its really coming in handy during these bitterly cold temperatures. Merino wool is nice in single/teen digit temperatures. Done awhile ago in Zara Extrafine Merino, more stash busting. It is toasty and warm.

Well, I got the pattern from craftster.org, but I did the colors myself.
