Wow! Thanks to all the people who commented on the previous post! I did forget to give you a link. Mea culpa. You can go to Knitty.com if you want to try this yourself.
About a year ago I knitted this pair of socks from some Interlacements yarn I found in the sale bin on the porch at the LYS. I now know why it was on sale. It is ugly. And. That yellow just keeps on bleeding and running every time I wash it. Ugh ugly.
So I went to the thrift store and bought a pot to use only for dyeing. I stripped a lot of the dye out of that pair of socks. Apparently the dyer started with a gray or black because I stopped before I got it all out: I wanted that touch of gray. I rinsed and rinsed and rinsed. Then I got out the Lemon-Lime Kool Aid, 4 packages in fact. Here's what I got:
Can you see that touch of gray?
I will most likely wear these now.
