African Sunset


Another afternoon dyeing with my daughter and one of her friends. This is my color African Sunset. Again I used Kool-Aid, but this time I hand painted the yarn.
One skein of of white didn't have it's label anymore and I was not quite sure if it was wool or not. Sure enough all the dye came of when I tried to rinse the yarn after microwaving.....
This would not be a problem with gloves. But since I threw away the last pair of gloves all the dye went over my hands........ they are still partly red.......and the skein of yarn is perfectly off white again. Oh, well....
