Please let me know if this should go in a different area… I’m still new to this forum!
Does anyone here dye their own yarn? I tried today for the first time, using Bernat Lana natural colored yarn as my base. Then I made a big skein by wrapping the yarn across a distance using cirucular laundry baskets as the ends. Then I used grape, cherry, and some Hawaiian Punch green colored kool-aid to dye it.
I wanted the dyed sections to be long enough to stripe some socks.
I would be interested to see others’ results if you do it yourself. Although it’s a lot of work to go through (especially with a 22-month-old clinging to everything), the results were so completely worth it!!
Edit - Here is a pic of it (finally dry!!). I just love how it came out. Now I just have to finish the other hank that I’m dyeing and figure out how to make socks.
