Overdyed Greens

Last night I was inspired after the Lambtown visit to overdye some yarn in my attempt to have a destash . This yarn is actually a combination of two brands of yarns that were similar in look, but I had left overs. I fused the two skeins together and started the planned overdyed. I turned to blueberry Kool Aid for the first touch of dyein. I made the bath water blue, then I opened some packages and put it directly on the fabric, is was a very direct hands on overdyed to give it a kettle dyed look. Once the KoOl aid was poured I gave it a minute or so, then mixed the yarn carefully as not to make it felt. I used neon green food coloring and some yellow food coloring in specific areas to make it blend, without agitation for a minute or so. I have a brand new yarn. The yarn I started with was closely similar, but with some areas of little or no dye on them. Perfect go this job in my opinion. Enjoy your Sunday , thanks for stopping by!
