Hand-Dyeing with Mom


I'm home on vacation at the moment and my mom had said she'd like to try the whole KoolAid yarn dyeing thing. So I brought home a couple skeins and we had fun!

The top picture is what I did. We re-skeined it so I could have a bunch of nice long color stretches. The colors are various combinations of Lemonade, Orange, Ice Blue Raspberry, and Wilton's Violet. The rightmost purply/blue spot has gone darker as it's dried, and the leftmost purpley spot has skewed a tad to the pink.

The bottom picture is what Mom did. The colors are Black Cherry, Lemonade, and a combination of Ice Blue Raspberry and Wilton's Violet.

Mom's yarn is KP Bare, 75% superwash 25% nylon. I used the KP Bare 100% Wool, handwash.
