I'm still not knitting, so I decided to dye some yarn that I had. I've been meaning to do this for months! So I started with some small samples of the yarns I had for dyeing and some Kool-aid, then I moved to some Jacquard Acid dyes that I bought last year. I basically followed the instructions on the web site, but combined several colors (vermillion, fiery red, burgandy and burnt orange). I liked the end results, next time I'll tied the skeins a little bit looser to avoid "white-spots". Most of the yarn came from thrift-store sweaters and will probably become various felted christmas presents for my family, but there was a bunch of yarn that my husband bought me in Germany and for that I have great plans...I just need to give my finger a little more rest, but I'm prepared!
I got a XXL man's sweater (J. Crew 100% wool) at the thrift store to keep myself busy for another week (in case you're wondering, I'm going to recycle the yarn and probably make something else) I love cheap yarn!
