MY FIRST HAND JOB


I dyed my first sock yarn. This 80% Merino and 20% Bamboo. I dissolved 4 different Kool Aids in little pots with hot water. I had already laid the hank of yarn out on the cling film. I took a 10ml syringe and I squirted till I was done. I then wrapped it up and nuked it for 4mins. I turned it over and nuked it again for 2 mins.
When I unwrapped it there was nothing but some clean water. I washed it in Fairy and then spun it. Dried it on the radiator. Nothing came out in the wash. The look is what I had in mind. Now lets see what it looks like knitted.

The young ones looked on, fascinated. Actually, I think they thought it might be food.
