Don't know if you remember the knitted/felted white laptop sleeve I made a few weeks ago. I thought it looked very boring in white+unpractical so I thought I would dye it. Some gentle commenter suggested I used Kool-aid...which I did for the first time. It was awesome, I felt like I was doing some crazy chemistry experiment:) I didn't have a bib enough saucepan to fit the sleeve into so I had to cram it in as best I could and regularly shuffle it around. The end result is a bit "tye n dye" which I really like and definitely not boring anymore.
An after "bright kool-aid green" shot and detail:
I really like the way it turned out and the fact that the inside lining (fleece) now pops out much more; it's possible to tell it's yellow. Both the lining (which is man made fleece) and the cotton yarn used for stitching (a non-animal yarn) didn't take any of the dye which is also a nice feature.
And here's a cowl I knitted a few weeks back. It took no time at all and was just knitted in the round following my own pattern. If anyone is interested; I could post instructions:)
Ok better go back to my master dissertation now........only two weeks left, scary! :(
All the best and keep on crafting!
