Next Project?

The other day while I was ordering the Swift I saw that shipping was free - sooooooo
my Yarn Stash is now richer by six skeins of white.
Rav has a yarn dyeing discussion group.
While browsing through some of the posts 
I read that some are using Wilton Icing Color for yarn dying.
All that it takes, aside from the icing dye, is white vinegar and a kettle of hot water.
You know how well I get around in the kitchen - how hard can this be.

Yes, I know this is not THE way serious yarnies do it. 
Just as soon as I get around to it I will order the Procion Dyes  
but 'til I really get serious.  Let's play ! ! !

Or, should I buckle down to give Thread Painting a try
It's been on my to-do list for such a long time.

Decisions, decisions.
Oh, I'll think about it tomorrow.



  1. Why not try both tomorrow? You could dye your yarn to match your bright flowers.

  2. I vote for thread painting. I want to see how you do that!!

  3. I'm really curious about using the food coloring to dye your yarn. Can't wait to see the results!


  4. I have never heard of thread painting, so that gets my vote. It sounds very interesting.

  5. Alert the fire department and go for it!!!

  6. I guess you can dye anything.I'm sure you will come up with some gorgeous colors.

  7. i am so wanting to learn thread painting. Are those prints or appliques? Either way, where did you get them. They are perfect for practicing thread painting.
