My First Dye Attempt
I'm so thrilled!

My first dye attempt, and it's working! I used blue koolaid, and microwaved the water, wool, and koolaid, for 7 minutes, and now I'm waiting for it to cool down.

It's so PRETTY!!!



Any suggestions from all you pro dyers?

pretty colors
It's easy! I got the directions from a book titled Knit Grrl.

The yarn is all dry, now, so, I'm going to knit it with some bright reds.

I can take a couple. The yarn ball is real tiny, so far.

But, it's a beautiful turquoise/caribbean blue! It looks brilliant next to
red yarns!!
