New hobby !!!

I try out hand dye a floss by my self follow the tutorial from here. Unlucky me as I only manage to get 3 colours of the dye .. green, blue and yellow. Anyway, for the first try, I thing this 3 colours should be enough. I can't wait to get others colour and try to hand dye more variety of floss. I will definitely going to use this colour for my other XS project that need me to use multi-colour thread.

Althought the outcome is not so fantastic that I want, but I guess this should be good enough for the beginner like me. Here you go my first attempt on hand dye floss ...
