So I bought some dye and all the various supplies, and tonight I got started on dyeing thread all on my own. I made 8 hanks of thread at 30 yd each. Three of the hanks are painted in variegated colors: reds, blues and purples. I also dyed three pairs of already crocheted earrings, and several practice pieces. (I’m thinking dollhouse rugs?) It’s Saturday night, and they need to sit for 48 hours, so Monday evening, I’ll get to see what I’ve actually accomplished. I’m especially interested in the olive green color. Mainly because the dye powder is bright orange! At first I thought it was mislabeled, but then I noticed that a number of the powders bore little resemblance to the color chart. It must be…Chemistry! Huzzah for Science!
