before/after

I pulled out a sweater the other day that I hadn't worn for months. I didn't notice til we were walking out the door, but it had a stain on the sleeve. So I just hid it while we were at church and afterward threw it in the wash...well it didn't come off. So I thought I'd try dying it. I was impressed with the result and will for sure try dying again in the future. The pictures are a little boring, but it was late at night and I was anxious to dye the sweater!

I used Rit Dye in scarlet and was hoping for a little darker red, but it turned out lighter, oh well. I bought the dye at our local grocery store and just used the directions on the package.
