I am starting a secondary project, an Irish cable/lace shawl, and bought some Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool for it. I had 40% and 50% coupon for it, so it was SUPER cheap. I was also suprised how soft it was, but that is besides the point.
My question is, I have some Kelly Green RIT dye, and am thinking about dying it...but right now it is just virgin wool and a nice cream type color. I am really torn. My great-grandma made a shawl in a green when she was back in Ireland, so it would be neat (though I don't know the first thing about dying), but I have alot of old knit stuff in the color that this yarn is also. (my youngest has a lovely sweater in the same color that I wore at one time).
So, what do you think? :?
