Igår eftermiddag hade jag verkligen roligt! Mina vänner, Mia och Birgitta, kom hit till butiken och vi färgade garn - i mikron.
Yesterday I had a very nice and funny afternoon! My friends, Mia and Birgitta, came to my shop and we made some yarn dyeing - in the micro-oven.
Here is the lovely yarn, waiting to get a new look.
First I tried Kool-Aid. (Mia told me that in the USA the children drink this as juice - with sugar added. Is that good?) I wonder why I choosed the red colour first....?
This ball looks nice. Now, in to the micro for 2 minutes.
I made some green, too. The yarn to the right is Mias multicoloured.
Here are my test-balls. The red one turned out to be pink. The green one is not totally coloured, but I wanted it that way. The ball to the right is very light yellow, with some pink in it.
Here is Mias purple colour.....
....and here is her yarn. She used a yarn in different grey shades, and the purple colour changed too, of course.
This is Birgittas lovely apricot-coloured yarn.
You can dry your yarn on the bike if you don´t have anything else.
Some of the yarn ready. Birgitta and I tried a green colour, too. That was a lovely one!
This is how my small bolls look today (they are not dry yet). The yarn down to the right is Alpaca, dipped in the purple colour.
Wool from the purple "bath". It´s grey beceause I only had it in the bucket for a little while.
My lovely green yarn. I wonder what I will make out of it? Maybe a shawl....
Det var en fantastiskt rolig eftermiddag! Smart att kunna använda micron till detta. Nu har jag nog fått "blodad tand"!
This was a very nice afternoon! What a smart idea to dye yarn in the micro. And this was not the last time!
I wish You all a lovely day!
Önskar er, alla vänner, en härlig dag!
