My Little Pony Revisted

This is my My Little Pony from when I was a little girl.  Well, I probably wasn’t that little, everyone loves toys.  Anyway, I’m clearing my stuff out of my Mum and Dad’s house because they’ve finally done it and turned my old bedroom into a guest room (it had to happen eventually), and I found her again.  She had a name, I don’t remember what it was, but because there’s only one of her, she can just be My Little Pony.

After the May dye-a-long challenge on Ravelry, where the theme was flowers, working with an inspiration piece when it came to dyeing yarn made a lot of sense.  I chose My Little Pony as my inspiration piece this time around, and not only did I get a giddy and lovely colourway, but it made my work my coherent and a lot more rewarding.  Especially since I got the colours bang on!  I used Queen’s food colouring again, but bought an eye-dropper to mix colours and paint the yarn.  A much longer process, but the colours aren’t as muddy as last time, in fact, the transitions between the colours is flawless.  There’s only one splodge from where the yarn escaped from the glad wrap when I microwaved it to set it.

And here it is!

    You got the colours bang on -and how! That is such a great idea. Who amongst us did not have a My Little Pony? If you're interested in possibly rediscovering her name, this website might help.

    Gorgeous!! I love the colours and the dropper seems to have worked a treat :) I might need to go get one too now ;)
