I had told you that I wanted to dye some yarn with food coloring, well I did. With a friend we had a nice afternoon in the garden and dyed three skeins.
I will show you what the yarns looked like before dying, some baby blue ( I must have bought that colour about 8 years ago as my son was still a baby), white and cream.
And this is the result, first as skeins and then as balls. The colours are quite true apart from the green which is a bit brighter in real.
Not too bad but we had to use up all the food coloring (2 packs with 4 colours each) and I think the colours are not as dark as with Kool Aid. My friend got hooked I think, so it won´t be the last dying taking place in our garden!
I have been machine quilting my scrappy star quilt and it is coming out fast! Some pictures next week.
I wish you a nice week.
