I started a project with my first skein of hand-dyed yarn. I did go with the Crochargosy pattern on Crochet Me. It’s a real easy pattern. I haven’t gotten too far because I’ve recently become addicted to FarmVille on Facebook. Here’s the scarf so far….

So far it looks like a bikini bottom, but that will obviously change once I get a bit farther on it. Just gotta stop playing FarmVille, PetVille, and FishVille………

I’m finally getting around to posting pictures of my dried hand-dyed yarn. Here it is:

The colors kind of remind me of Sherbet, Orange and Lemon-Lime Sherbet.

As for what I’m going to do with it, I think I found a good pattern. Crochargosy from Crochetme.com fits the bill. I need something that will work for one skein since I only dyed one skein. This scarf looks like it will be easy to use just one skein. I don’t think I have anything to match the colors, but it doesn’t matter.
