I Followed My Own Blog

The title says it all. I was doing something, but I'm not sure what. Anyways, I accidently followed my own blog! I don't know how to undo it. Does anyone else know how?

Even More Yarn Dyeing

I dyed more yarn last night! I did it the same as lat time. And I used orange and cherry Kool-Aid. It was going to have yellow in it, but instead of lemon Kool-Aid, I grabbed strawberry lemonade or something. So, it was pink, but I decided not to use it. :)

More Yarn Dyeing!

I dyed more yarn last week or so! I LOVE the color!! Instead of doing it in a pot like last time, I sprayed the Kool-Aid on with a waterbottle and a 1/2 tablespoon. It was so much more fun! Oh, the colors I used was blueberry and lime. The colors sorta blended in toghether. And next time I think I want to do pink, red, and orange! Here's what I did:

1: Wash it in the sink

2: While it was soaking, I put the Kool-Aid in sepeate cups, with water and stirred. Then, put the green in a spray bottle, and kept the blue in the cup and use a 1/2 tablespoon. :)

3: Lay the yarn out on a big Target bag, and... SPRAY, SPRAY, SPRAY!! :D Until there was no more white.

4: Pop it in the microwave for a minute, let it cool, and popped it in again.

5: Wrapped it around a chair and dryed overnight! Then the next morning, I wrapped it in a ball and it was done!!

Now, excuse me, I need to go dye more yarn! XD

Yarn Dyeing

I dyed yarn with orange Kool-Aid the other day. The first try, I did everything, but then realized I didn't use WOOL YARN. So, I was washing it out in the sink and the color washed right out of it! So, then I tried wool yarn and it worked! I really like it!

The Kool-Aid:

First, we washed it in a pan in the sink:

Then we let it soak while we put the Kool-Aid in a pot. And, MAN, that stuff smelled like oranges!:

Next, we put the yarn in with the Kool-Aid:

Hehe, it looks like yarn-spaghetti:

Then it sat in the pot for 30 minutes and washed it in the pan in the sink (when I did this with not wool yarn, the color just came right out!). Then we wrapped it into a ball. It was so tangled! We wrapped it around the back of a chair to dry overnight next. And in the morning I wrapped it into a ball and it was finally done!!

Bye-bye ''Broseph'' and Alfalfa!

We had to give away Patty and Alfalfa a couple of days ago. :( Yes, we called Patty ''Broseph''..... Alfalfa's feathers were getting really pretty too. Here's some pictures of them:


Alfalfa or ''Falfa'':

Oh, and, aren't these other pics cute?!
