Don't forget to enter my contest.
I have officially taken another step into knitting madness, I have dyed my own yarn. It was a lot less scary than I thought it would be. I took the plunge because I was getting tired of the limited selection of wool colors that I was finding at the craft store. I am an artist at heart and love to work with varied and beautiful colors. I used Kool-aid and it was so simple to do, there are a lot of websites out there with instructions but I found this one to be the easiest to follow.
I picked orange for my first attempt. Here it is stewing away on the stove top.
This is the yarn after the first time around. I decided it was not dark enough so I did another round with more orange. The second orange left the yarn darker but I felt a little something else was needed.
This is the yarn after I added some red to it. It is now a nice deep orange, more pumpkiny. I can't wait to knit with it!
