Result

It took a couple more helpings of chocolate to get this pink tamed down.  Not sure if I'm ready for the rusty shade - I never wear browns or orange.  But since it's below my waist, I'll give something new a try.  I've taken one photo with the original so you can see how much it has changed.


And here's a pic with the potential partner of cream cotton.  The new rusty shade is more accurate in the first photo - its not so dark as in the one right above.  I'm hoping the finished skirt doesn't come out looking too candy-can striped.  The swatch looked OK though.  Casting on - now!

Cream and chocolate, great combo!
Your dyeing is superb, and the finished product will be truly an original.
I don't wear browns or orange either, but I'm sure it will look lovely, and teamed with a cream top, yum!

This would be real pretty for fall. And is is almost a neutral! I think anything would go with it.

It'll be great. Those colours look good together.

I love the outcome in the color pot. Chocolate was an excellent choice.

I like the color it turned out. It looks like a variegated chocolate color. It should look great in the shirt.

Vigorously nodding my head in agreement with all the comments above.

I LOVE the new colour! Love the skirt too. Admired the pattern but I don't think I wear skirts enough to spend the time knitting one that might not see a lot of action. But maybe if I had a beautiful skirt I'd want to wear it all the time... hmmm.
