Hand-dyed: Raspberry Sorbet

This is the final installment of my recent dyeing phase that resulted in some lovely creations and one rather unfortunate surprise. The final skein of sock yarn was dyed with Dylon's flamingo pink and tulip red. I had to overdye it because the initial result was pretty much entirely pink. Even now, despite having added significantly more red, the skein is still rather pink.

It is the variegation that I like about the yarn and considering that it is Valentine's day soon, this isn't too bad a colour. I threatened my boyfriend with a pair of heart-patterned pink socks for the occasion, which he wasn't very happy about. He won't have to worry, I'll be keeping this yarn for myself.
