Finally, DYED YARN!!!Back in May for my birthday I got some undyed wool! I dyed a skein of it and I was too lazy to post it for a while. So here it is:
I followed a blog tutorial from Streets and YO's,which had not only an interesting title but a great tutorial!
Here it is: It's about 200 yards. And, I managed to get it all tangled, of course after tangling up the other skein even worse and not being able to untangle it in a day.
So we had some trouble getting it on the chair.
Then you have to soak it....
And then we bought too little Kool-Aid. We tried to dye it, but it came out really pale with one pack of each color. (We bought it before the tutorial was read. Actually, my mom did.) I didn't take a picture of that.
But here it is in big containers. I used like 3 packs each of these.
Then you cook it in a pot. Once the water is clear, it's done. Isn't that awesome? The yarn soaks up all the koolaid so the water is clear.
And here it is out of the pot. Look how pretty it is!
I will get around to felting the little bowl I've knitted, so look for that!
