After a dyebath... Truly, though I love the color, I wish I'd left it natural. Sometimes I just get caught up in the process and it had been so long since I used my dyepot. Oh, well. I chose an Elizabeth Zimmerman pattern for a casual saddle shoulder sweater. Since the yarn is sort of scratchy aran (Irish) utility grade, I didn't want to make anything too fancy, more a functional fall weekend sweater. You'll see!
