I had this lovely (not!) blue sweater shell that I sort of liked. I loved the sweater. It was light weight, a great length, didn’t gape at the armholes, and was soft soft soft. However, I hardly ever wore it because I had issues with the color. It was old lady dusty blue, a sort of greyish cast medium blue color. Blech. Double Blech.
While Teen Daughter #2 was playing with dye (See Playing With Dye Part I below), I decided to whip up a dyebath myself. I successfully transformed frumpy shell into an awesome grape purple summer sweater! Now I absolutely love it.
