I'd been saving all this white Alpaca I had spun a while ago for just this purpose.
I had to haul out the heavy duty gloves for the color bonanza I had in mind.
That and a whole lot of Kool-Aid, food coloring and Rit dye! I had the whole kitchen a mess and I was loving every minute of it.......the gardener not so much.....he was upset that I was using all the kool-Aid on yarn. Crazy guy! I started with a nice bright yellow and got this.
Which was fun but either it or I needed more so
I did this to get
this but it still wasn't enough so I add blue
and got this. I could have gone further but figured I better quit while I was ahead on this skein.
I added yellow, blue and purple on the other two skeins to get
this. By now the entire kitchen was trashed and my fingers were several different shades blue, purple, orange and red and that was while wearing big heavy duty gloves! LOL I managed to take my mind of the worry though and bright and early this morning
we picked her up from the hospital
and she's resting comfortably in her favorite chair in the spinning room at Grandmas house. She has a brand new see through cone and her eye looks so much better. Now she just has to heal so those new stitches can be removed.
