My Own Hand-Painted Yarn
I have been wanting to dye my own yarn for awhile now. I've been reading up on it and researching it for a couple of months. On Tuesday, I finally decided to take the plunge. I unrolled my ball of natural wool yarn into a hank, mixed my kool-aid in various cups, and started painting it onto the yarn. I wasn't so sure I liked it at the beginning, but as it dried and the colors mellowed out a bit, it started to grow on me. Now with it wound back into a ball, I'm pretty happy with it. The big question is will I like it when it's knitted up?!? I'll post a pic when I get to that project and you can judge for yourself.
