This is the second posting of the day- I am trying out new fonts- just to see what I might like (I told you I was kinda new at this!!!!!!) A while ago, I tried my hand at Kool- Aid dyeing. I used the microwave method. What I really wanted was something that looked like the hand-painted stuff I saw for a gajillion dollars, and had a wide range of rich colour in it. I started with some baby yarn (mostly wool) that I had gotten on sale somewhere. It had a thread (multi-coloured) that wrapped the length of it (I suppose that was where the polyester came in- it was only 5% or so). And, after playing for about an hour or so, this is what I got. Now the next task is this- what exactly do I do with it now? I had 8- 50 gram balls (no yardage information on it) It is definitely fingering weight. And each skein is very similar-I arranged the colours in a rainbow/spectrum-red-orange-yellow-green-blue-purple. But what to make? Any ideas?
