It's to dye for.

And we're back! So here it is, in it's new and improved Black Cherry flavor, my spinning! This picture is of when Emma dumped in the Koolaid, I was trying to get a photo of when it frothed up like some kind of science experiment but the camera was too slow :( However, you can see the mess it made on the stove. And here it is boiling away in the pot, looking a lot like entrails, but smelling much, much better.
And now it's cooling down, you can see how the Koolaid is being absorbed. When I was done the water was clear! It was so cool!
And here it is hanging in the laundry room...
Here's a close up, ain't that a great colour? It was going to be darker, but I only added 3 of the 4 packets, so it's got this flamey red going on. Very pretty! It's still a little damp this morning, so I hung it up outside. I hope my spinning came out as yarn, and not a useless tangle, but I think the dyeing went superbly.
