These didn’t turn out 100% how I hoped they would, the tutorial (https://kraftingkitten.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php) I used some got all these fun colors but mine just combined….and it would do the whole hank and not just the top half which seems she gets…I have some more yarn so I am going to do a few more experiments because I really LOVE the multi-colors that kool-aid dyeing gives…but I am just not seeing it as I wish…but either way, here we go
- Lion’s Brand Fisherman’s Wool: Natural
- Pink Lemonade, Lemonade, Ice Blue Raspberry and Grape
I then let it soak for 15 mins and away I went
….The crockpot is turned on to low…
I first added the pink lemonade and lemonade and let it sit for a while
Not really sure why, but I call this color, Welcome to the 60s,
Here it is wound up in a ball
- Lion’s Brand Fisherman’s Wool Oak Tweed
- 2 Pink Lemonade, 2 Lemon-Lime and 1 Slammin’ Strawberry Kiwi
First I did the 2 packets of Pink Lemonade
Than I decided I wanted a slight more pink color, so I propped up half the skein with a box and tossed in the Slamming’ Strawberry Kiwi and let that sit for 10-15 mins. I had to prop it up or I would have created a wink and the water would have gone ALL over my kitchen floor.
Results for Experiment 3:
I am not 100% in love with it (I kind of got annoyed that after three attempts it wasn’t working like the tutorial and I had done everything pretty much to the LETTER…so I was doing strange things, like dumping random colors I didn’t even want to use), I might try over-dyeing it with some Grape….I HATE that I wasted my last green on this, oh well…Kool-Aid is CHEAP.
Now I am off to do the Oak Tweed in Strawberry and Grape, this time only putting half in the pot at a time
After that the Natural color will get a dosing of Tropical Punch, Lemonade and Soarin’ Strawberry Lemonade (Redish pink, yellow and hot pink)…which I will also try to only do it a little bit at time.
