Honey, I'm home!!!!!

Helloooooo?

Have you missed me?


NO?



OK :-) But I'm here now, and it seems like your stuck with me....... Have had/am having a rough time. Hard to accept reality sometimes in life. Things are going better, and it is impossible to lie down and die, so I've been told....

Soooo. Instead of "dying", I've been "dyeing", and that really is a great difference I believe :-)

I've been documenting my yarn-dyeing again. Here's the first round. Thin wool/alpacca yarn, dyed with ONE package of Kool-Aid. Every thing done in the same way: using "water-boiler", blending in a large bowl, dip one end of the shein in this, and then press the whole shein in. An easy and effectiv method to dye on.

The first 3 sheins are Canadian Kool-Aid, the last 2 are American. The first 2 Canadian gave stronger and gave more color to the yarn. Not much difference in shein 3 and 4. And how on earth I got hold of Canadian Kool-Aid? Well, some secrets are allowed while doing business!!!





Thanks Penny!!
