Dye again

I used a corner of lambs pride and dyed it in the microwave. Like I said before microwave was really easy but I did something wrong because my hands are red. The blue dye came off in my hands. I need to fix that before the dye comes off on a babies head.

Microwave dyeing

I am still at it I has a corner of white lambs pride so I gave it a go. Microwave dyeing is real easy. I have to wait for it to cool though I hate waiting. I am still waiting for my other yarn to dry. Boo.not sure why the blue is kinda purple as well does that mean it broke? I don't know. I am going to make something baby size out of this yarn.

My gradient yarn

Not bad for my first try. I used McCormick food coloring but mostly Wilton icing dye. This is before I rinsed it. I will definitely do this again. The warnings of wear gloves was just. NAND may out a stack of news paper or plastic bags. I got due on my foot therefore I had a nice trail in the kitchen. I had due everywhere and I could not figure out how. Glad I used non toxic dye my poor children. It is taking a while for all the excess dye to come out. Yes I am afraid of felting. I used. Blue and green the last section is like a deep emerald green. The plan is to make a nasty ( in my ms dineva voice) entrelac scarf. Even though I can't wear wool.

I have made three and when I finds yellow bulky cotton I will have four! I had to learn how to do the magic cast on so my first one looks a little wonky but when I came home I was on that magic cast on like nobody's business.

My dress

It was supposed to be a maxi dress but my fabric was not wide enough I think. I may have folded it incorrectly. Who knows. I received many compliments on my dress. I want to make another one out of this linen look fabric. I have the cutest brown heels and crisp white shirt that will go with it. Putting that bias tape in middle was no walk in the park but I did it. I really really want to make a romper. I don't have the slightest idea how though.
