NEW! As soon as I finished the Morning Mittens, I knew they were destined for some dye experiments. (They were bound to get stained anyhow, so why not do it intentionally? ) .
I've seen people dye loose yarn with food coloring, so I figured it might be possible to dye finished projects as well. It was SO fun! I think you could use this technique on any knit or crochet item made from 100% wool. And the results are basically colorfast. Wouldn't it be fun to try a beanie, a cowl, maybe even a blanket!? .
I used @lionbrandyarn Fishermen's Wool, and it was even softer after being dyed.
Get the full step-by-step tutorial and free mitten pattern in my bio link or by searching "food coloring" on MakeAndDoCrew.com.
My packet of alum arrived which means i really need to order some yarn to dye! I've spent my last two days worth of breaks at work picking out what I wanted, only to tonight end up on the @deramores website and order sock yarn+a jumper and a poncho kit no undyed yarn though. But I got 25% off for @letsknitmag 10th birthday!! Nice little payday treat. Can't wait for them to arrive! I'll need to do another order for undyed yarn.
1stk sokk ferdig i Kates sokkegarn, navnet på denne fargen har ikke riktig kommet til meg enda. Jeg synes den minner om et juletre som står pyntet ute i snø, hihi. Jeg får gruble litt mere, men tar gjerne imot et forslag eller to :)
One of these might (read; will) end up living with me because... Well look at it! How could I not keep one?
I want to make a hat with it, I don't actually like wearing hats but that's not really the point is it #yarndying#sinkshot#handdyedyarn
These guys are having a re-dip. I tried to do 2 at once in baggies but it just wasn't saturated enough so did a bit of shuffling (whilst talking to myself.. "Gloves, Barb, that is Hot" ) #yarndying#selfstripingyarn
