I started up with stiring the Kool-Aid powder into some hot water. The colors are quite strong and I couldn't help wondering if people really dare to drink this poisonlike beverages?
Earlier this summer I bought some swedish plain wool so I decided to begin my dyeinglession no. 1 with theese skeins. I had two white and two light grey skeins and I started up with the white ones.
Please don't laugh no when looking at my pictures. I must admit it looks rather unprepared with different kind of too small jars and jugs to dye in. But with some effort and a little bit of violence I managed to soak the entired skein into a color.
I don't know if this method is to prefer or if I was doing everything the wrong way but I had to move hot yarn back and forth between the jars in order to avoid any white leftovers.
After some cooling and rinsing I could hang my first homedyed skein for drying on a chair.
I was quite satisfied with the result and it was so fun so I immediately started up a new batch to dye!
As you understand I have jumped a few or more steps in the process here but I had no time to take more pictures, I was a busy dyeing, remember! Ha! I couldn't imagine how fun it would be.
So, after some troble with making a nice looking skein I came up with this:

This is my version of My so called scarf a great herringbone pattern I found at Sheep in the City some time ago.
I have used different skeins of Noro Silk Garden (can't remember the color-code) and knitted alterned two rows each. I think it looks great.
Och stickningen då? Jo jag har stickat massor i sommar men jag har inte hunnit fota allt så här kommer ett smakprov. My so called scarf ett superbt mönster jag hittade hos Sheep in the City för ett tag sedan. Jag har använt två olika nystan av Noros Silk Garden (kommer inte ihåg färgkoderna) och stickat 2 varv av vardera färgen omväxlat. Jag tycker att det blir snyggt.
