Sunday mornings seem to be a good day for my microwave dyeing. My husband dislikes the smell of the cooking wool, so I can "stink up the house" while he is away at the fire brigade. :)
This past Sunday I did some more Kool-Aid dyeing... this time with the "real" stuff. I dyed 50 grams each of orange, lemon-lime and strawberry. I used two packets per 50 grams of wool. Here are the results I got...
I'm happy with how the colours came out. And as always with Kool-Aid dyeing, you get the added bonus of a fainty yummy fruity smell at the end.
Originally from California, I have been living in Australia since 2005. I live with my husband and our adorable doggie, and I am a proud Auntie of 7.
I learned to crochet in 2008. My dad's wonderful wife Cathy taught me to crochet in the back of the car - making herself carsick in the process.
I originally wanted to learn crochet because I've loved Granny Squares ever since I was a kid. I was fascinated by the magic of making something so interesting from a hook and a ball of yarn.
