I'm Dyeing...My Handspun!

Yum! Doesn't that look like a nice pot of purple noodles? Well, it's my first batch of Kool Aid dyed yarn. I used grape and black cherry. We'll see how it turned out soon enough! And my kitchen smells like fruit...well, chemically altered fruit.
This is my second batch and I used cherry, lemonade, and orange. It's on the stove right now. I think this one will go to my friend Kellen who was the first person to request my hand spun yarn. And I didn't even know he was a knitter! Brilliance.

Oooh...that is so cool! how long do you cook the noodles...er...yarn for? Cna't wait to see the finished product.

Bought undyed, natural worsted wool at Village Wool yesterday for a cabled hoodie. It's abrown color. They put the sheep flock number on the label! I thought that was so cute! (Wonder if the sheep have little number tags on them?)
