It looks like there needs to be an intervention at my house. I found some white yarn that I forgot I had (gasp!) and a few things I could dye them with and I can’t seem to stop. My dogs are glad that they happen to not be a light color. They might be green right now.
So anyway today I thought I would make an attempt to make a very quick gradient type of color. Pinterest has so many fun dyeing tips that I pretty much spent an hour just lost on there. That never happens to you, right?
I decided not to soak the yarn in water first to see what would happen. I chose Cherry Kool-aid, Pink Lemonade, and Black Cherry this time.
Here’s the yarn that I “forgot” I had:
Anyway, again I filled the big ol’ kettle with just a bit of vinegar (just in case although everyone says Kool-aid is acidic enough), put my Kool-aid in. I didn’t mix it hardly at all because I wanted to see what would happen just my laying the dry yarn in.
Then the exciting part:
It’s just so fun to watch the color absorb onto the yarn.
I submerged the yarn a little bit more to get the whiter spots a little bit more pink.
Then out it came:
Now I’ll go wash it and hang to dry.
Man! Obsessed. Maybe I’ll start taking people’s socks and “unmentionables” to dye next as I am really out of white yarn. Or I’ll just go get some more white yarn. Heh heh.
On a side note, I’ve just opened an Etsy store (over on the side bar) called Pot O Gold Yarn so if you’re so inclined, maybe take a look. I’m putting together kits and singles from my Yarn Shop days. Thanks!!
I guess I’m a dye-addict-ly yours,
Here’s my Pot O’Gold-this moment,
