Look What Happened Yesterday

Onyx and Hydroponic 
Some yarn got washed!  This is Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in Onyx and Hydroponic.  I decided to go ahead and get it washed because it will take another day to dry and then it will be all ready whenever I decide to start a new Ravello!

(Who am I kidding, I'm totally casting on as soon as the yarn has dried and been wound!)

Onyx will be the main color and Hydroponic will be the stripes.  I will probably be adding more stripes than the pattern calls for, but I've done this before and it works.  I was actually surprised as I was washing it, that there really wasn't very much excess dye to wash out.  I expected to spend most of the day messing with the Onyx, but it only took two washes.  I washed the Hydroponic twice as well, but I think once would have been enough.  Thankfully Madelinetosh uses lots of yarn ties, so the skeins are still neatly organized.  It's almost dry now and I think it should be completely dry by tomorrow morning.

Theoretically, someone could wind yarn and cast on tomorrow.
