Yarn, yarn YARN

Yarn, yarn YARN

Look how pretty 🙂

So I have been working very much lately and have had many ongoing projects at the same time, so the blog has been put on hold. But yesterday I wanted to test something new, and the results are so pretty I felt I had to post them on here.

Since I have been knitting and crocheting so much the last few months, my yarn stash is growing and changing all the time. Surrounded by pretty colours and soft yarn, I still felt that I wanted to make something unique and new. So, I tested dyeing my own yarn!!

 

I started with some white acrylic yarn that I had, using food dye and any tools I had at home I created these two beauties.

 

 

There was still so much dye left, so I also tested dyeing some white fluffy yarn I had. Look how pretty 🙂

So fluffy and cute.

Later on I wanted to dye the real thing, I use wool almost always, and if it wanted something that could be useful then I had to dye wool. What I had at home that I could spare ( friday night) was a gray 100% wool 50 g, which has some kind of a mixed colours effect. Very beautiful, gray white and black in a very gentle mix. I extracted a very nice green colour from some green cardamom I had at home and a red-brown colour from black beans. These colors, with some blue food coloring, citric acid and some effort became these three 🙂

These two colour ways could work together.

 

The last, and dare I say best skein the I dyed yesterday almost in the middle of the night, was this pretty cream merino wool I had.

My absolute favorite <3

For this, I used the green from the cardamom, pink food coloring and water. Am so happy with how they all tured out, I should have done thing a long tim ago. Now I still unsure about what to do with them, since I only have so little of each colour way, but looking at them will have to do until I know.

Note: always use gloves when mixing dye or working with the yarn, otherwise you will end up with stained red hands ( said from experience 🙂 )
