Today I tried my hands at Hand Painting Yarn.
Needless to say, we both thoroughly enjoyed the process! So fun to see the colors soak in and spread together...
He was very thoughtful with his placement and even kept himself relatively clean!
We decided to go with a Teal/Green/Tan color pallet. But, to be honest, these are the only colors I had on hand that complimented each other.
Being that this was my first time taking on dying yarn I definitely learned a few things:
Next time I will use heat: we did this outside. Wet the yarn with cold water and used color dye on the yarn. Rinsed with cold water. All cold. This was the best choice for today, since I was trying to keep it outside, and had my boy helping. Cold seemed the best choice. The draw back is that most of the dye came out during the rinsing.
I'm sure there are other things I'll learn along the way. I'm definitely going to try this again!
In fact, I've even got a bit of yarn draped across my lap as I type! I'm off to paint some more yarn :-)
