Fun with yarn dyeing!!

This was earlier in the summer, but I had the absolute best time dyeing Lion Brand Fisherman’s Wool with kool-aid and cooking dyes.  It was so easy!  And if I didn’t like how it turned out, I just dyed it again.

 

 

 

I love the tone on tone dyed yarns so for this project I dyed a hank in three shades of green using food coloring liquid dyes.  It worked great.  And the pattern made itself!  wooo!!!  And then I felted it into a cute little purse.

Elena’s new hat and scarf

I had hours on the train going up to visit the family in Michigan to work with her yarn, so this is finally what I came up with. This boucle yarn made it really hard to see my stitches when crocheting, but it still turned out cute!
