Two weeks back a streak of hot weather and sunny days and leftover yarn from the blanket and a rediscovery of Kool-Aid / Weyler’s in a cabinet make me want to try solar dyeing. My first experience with Kool-Aid Dyeing came out pretty well, though I still haven’t worked up that yarn (or dyed the other skein).
Around 12:30 I moved the bowl to the driveway – I think that temperature is acutally the temperature of the driveway, not the bowl – it was hard to hold it and get the focus on the camera and take the photo at the same time. Anyway, it was very warm.
Ta-dah! There is still a little hint of the brown-gold, but it doesn’t bother me so much any more. I adore the shade of purple this came out. It might become a Sunday Market Shawl for around the house, or Koolhaas.
