Alright, so I know this bag may not look very exciting, but think of all the possibilities!!! I just had a lovely trade for this fabulous white roving, and I can't wait to start dying.
The truth is I haven't had a whole lot of experience dying yarn. The one time I did do it, it turned out fabulous! I found this great color card online that really helped me get a legit idea for what kind of kool-aid to use. I haven't tried any dyes other than kool-aid, but I may be willing to experiment. Also I have heard of adding a certain kind of tea to the kool-aid that dulls the brightness a bit so I am hoping to find that as well.
Anyhow, I just had to share my roving excitement. Right now I working on some alpaca mittens with the yarn I dyed previously... I'll work on getting you a picture. Also I am combining the results of two of my polls and making some fingerless gloves out of recycled silk - be watching for them to pop up in my shop!
