Artsy photo in town.
Here is the happy couple and Allen.
When we got back, I decided I wasn't too fond of this green kool-aid dyed wool yarn and decided to do a variegated acid dye on it.
I mixed three different colors, Chartreuse, Sky Blue and Sapphire Blue. I used 2 tsp for each and the dye looked really dark. I poured 1/4 of each in a cup and watered it down. I used both the concentrated and watered down dyes on the yarn.
I put my yarn in a couple layers of grocery bags to contain any dye that went through the yarn. I poured the concentrated dyes on in areas, then filled in any spots with the watered down dyes. I put the yarn in my steamer. This steamer is for dyeing only and can never be used for food. I got this pot at the Goodwill a couple years ago. Steamed it for 40 minutes? I was doing other things so did not watch the clock.
The yarn is still drying but here are the results. It is a bit darker than I wanted but it still is lovely.
