when dying your wool or yarn use gloves... Or your fingers may turn out like this... notice they're water logged and wrinkley. LOL I've been playing in water all night what do you expect?
so Wednesday night I spent my time dying yarn... Look here's some fun fun pix.
I tried making this stripey but it didn't work. Next time I'm going to have to reskein the frickin thing and do it the "right" way. UGH that's what you get for being lazy though.. Oh well I'm sure I'll like the results once it's knitted up! so this was supposed to be stripey. There are 3 skeins there. I used these colors in it. (sorry the pix is dark I did say wed night after all) the actual yarn turned out lighter than I wanted but I think I like it.. Here's a pix of it drying.. (2 days later it's still drying and I'm just itching to knit it or something) it's in my shower so I'm going to have to take a pix of these things in the daylight to show you a better view of the colors. They're a lot lighter. Ok now on to the next 2 skeins. I used these colors in this one. so for these 2 I tried something different I slashed and splooshed and swirled and sprinkled. I love the deep colors I got. I'm going to have to use these colors again. So here it is going into the microwave...
and then it's done. Beautiful!
anyways a while I go I got some wool right of a sheep a lady over at crochetville was giving it away. So I asked for some.. Well I also spent yesterday cleaning it... I used the tutorial here. She has some great stuff over there check out her other tutorials. While it was still wet I dyed it if you think that you shouldn't wear gloves while dying things look at this pix of steam that I took while I was letting it rest between heating. also here's some pix of how it turned out. so my question to you today is NOW WHAT? I'm not sure what to do next I guess I have to card it but I don't want to buy something like that b/c I doubt I'll be doing that very often. And I'm kinda broke.... So any suggestions? Well with that I'll leave you!
oh wait. I created a weight loss blog check me out!
