I just spent 2 hours winding off lace weight yarn from a cone into a hank (on the swift) so that I can dye it for a mystery shawl Knit-A-Long that I have joined that will start in June. 1700 yards.  *sigh* now my back hurts. and I still have to decide what color I am going to dye it. I am aiming for varying shades of a single color. But I am debating between green, and red, the hard part is going to be getting either of the colors as dark as I want them to be for the darkest shades.

I will do the crock-pot method, only for this much yarn, I will be using the turkey roaster that I have so that I make sure to get good absorption. Red or Green… tough decision.
