but to satisfy the demand to show finished objects...I give you..."Here's one I made before".
I suppose I should eventually get a gallery for finished items, but I'll need to do some wrestling with the technology as I simply dont understand some of the directions. (I guess complete unfamiliarity with html does not help).
Anyway - this is not really a finished item yet, but its my first attempt at Kool-Aid dying. Actually it might be my only attempt as it made the entire house smell like fruit drink (not really surprising).
I bought some undyed knit-picks wool and did the dying in 2 stages - first the orange, then the pink. The orange was with 3 packets of some orange-coloured flavour and the pink was one packet of strawberry? cherry? - something red.
Each colour took about 4 mins in the microwave and leaked surprisingly little when I rinsed it out after the colouring step.
I dont yet know what this is destined to become - I have 220 yards so maybe a tiny shrug or something.
