Amy Rose the Hedgehog, part 2

Stank up the kitchen with hot vinegar last night dying Knitpicks Bare Silk/Merino fingering weight with store brand neon food color dye (purple and pink) to go with the first Kool Aid dyed round of Amy Rose.
The colors in person are pretty close to these pictures - I'm actually pleased with a photo I took in this case - and I think it will be really interesting to see them paired together.
Once this second installment dries, I'll knit some swatches. Maybe the Vis-A-Vis Pullover, maybe a cardigan?
Please let me know if you have a great idea for this stuff. . .


  1. What a pretty color! A pullover, maybe?

  2. Something not too bulky, maybe a little fitted and cute . . . lest the wearer end up looking like a huge ball of Pepto-Bismol. I think a simple pull over is what will work best, you're right.
    Hurry up and dry, yarn, I want to swatch.
