Turquoise and Red
Based on the comments from my last post about yarn, I decided to try a combination of turquoise and red. (Thanks Fenna!) I dyed two balls of yarn using red kool-aid, blue kool-aid, and a little bit of lemonade. It is amazing how the same colors can turn out so different! For the first ball of yarn I started with two packets of red. The red is a very strong tinter, and sort of overpowered the batch. I dyed the remaining white parts with two packets of blue. It turned out with a primarily red yarn with a few purple bits, and some bright blue bits.
In other news, my yarn is now on sale at Crafty Goodness in Lakewood, Ohio! Stop on by and take a look at all the good stuff available from NE-Ohio artists. Also, check them out on facebook.
