I dyed! I dyed!

For the first time! I dyed wool! Some natural coloured Perendale roving I had lying around? I dyed it! See?


Koolaid dyed Perendale roving



It's dyed with Koolaid. Ice blue and lime something or other. The apartment smells like candy. I was so excited that when I went to work, I went to Safeway on my break. Luckily, they have Koolaid on sale right now. 5 packets for a dollar. I bought 15 packets. The cashier looked at them and asked me if they were any good. I told her that I didn't know but I wasn't planning on eating them. I was planning to dye wool with them. She gave me a look but was gracious and didn't ask. ;)

I placed an order for four more pounds of wool. I can't wait til it gets here!

Oh boy. Now, when you do that magic thing and spin it, it will be so cool. I can't wait to see it worked up.

And that cashier -- bring 'em in when they're yarn and show her. You can take over the world, one cashier at a time.

It's looks marvelous! I have yet to try dying, I really have to give it a shot, especially with kool aid, it's so cheap, and you can definitely get beautiful results.
