Here's a recap of the day:
1- Carrot soup with veggies and hummus for lunch.
2- Set up the kitchen and start dyeing.
|Supplies: food coloring, kool-aid, pocking stick, seringe and squirt bottles|
|Soaking the yarn|
|Neon green as a base color|
|Add some darker green and dark blue|
|Love the resulting colors|
|Soaking in orange Kool-Aid (smells good)|
|Orange Kool-Aid (still smells good)|
|Grape Kool-Aid (smells good too)|
|3 skeins of chunky superwash soaking|
|Result: I need to over dye it, there's a lot of white spots (need to buy more food coloring first, I'm out of red, of course)|
3- Hang the skeins up to dry
|All of them drying in the spare bedroom (you can see the white spots on the chunky yellow-orange-red ones)|
|Kari's beautiful 3 colored skein (purple, green and blue)|
4- Dinner of homemade chicken wings (broiled, not fried) with a honey-garlic-ginger sauce and more veggies while watching the Super Bowl (I rooted for the Giants because of the red on their uniforms, of course).
5- Me exhausted but happy.
