Winter and Yarn Porn

January has sluggishly gone by and I have not really been motivated to hurry it along. Been a hermit for the most part and playing with Fiber in all forms.

Here is a little yarn porn for you all. I dyed my first merino spun two ply yarn. I am sending this out to a friend in Cali, whom is going to crochet me a surprise. It is going to be great!
I simply took several packets of koolaid. Mixed them in hot water. Soaked my yarn in hot water and vinegar mixture. Then squirted the dye in the water on top of soaked yarn and heated in microwave for a really long ass time till all the water appeared to have no more koolaid dye left in it. Rinsed and hung to dry.
