Abigail said she needed a project bag for her knitting, too. I can take care of that.
She is currently liking pink and purple. Stash is a wonderful thing to dive into when it yields just the right stuff.
After I got the bag finished and in the package to Georgia, I pulled some yarn to dye because this caught my eye when I was looking for fabric. I was given 5 skeins so I decided to do some over-dyeing since this washed out pumpkin just wasn't what I wanted.
Into my designated crock pot I added some hot water, white vinegar and a teaspoon of dye and then my two skeins of yarn which I had wound into a loose skein so it would be better able to absorb the dye. I turned it on high for an hour, then just left it to cool and completely exhaust the dye...several hours later I had some gorgeous yarn without any dye rinsing out of the yarn! Yes!
From melon to vine.......now this is a color to make me happy! It just might be a pair of slippers!
(I even like the melon better now that it is next to the green!)
