Solar Power

by Aimee on June 30, 2008

This coming weekend is the Charlotte Yarn customer appreciation event and on Saturday SUNDAY I will be teaching solar dyeing with kool-aid.

Why solar dye and why kool-aid? because they are fast, fun and easy!

Plus, you can do it with things you really have in your house already.

Stop by the shop to see these 2 skeins up close and personal, or call the shop if you would like to take the class – I am teaching it several times throughout the day – the cost is $15 and includes your yarn and all supplies!

I did a little experimenting with 2 color dyeing, but it is a little tricker than the single color and unless you really are adventerous we will be sticking to single color this weekend.

Part of what I love about this is the suble variations of the color that came onto the yarn.

That and it smells like grape kool-aid!

I used KnitPicks Superwash Sock Yarn for my experimenting, though we will be using a worsted weight yarn in class!

Hope to see you on this weekend for the fun and festivities – and it isn’t too late to sign up for my class or any of the FREE classes!

So very much pretty. Le sigh. Perhaps this fall when I finish my whirlwind tour of the world and weddings I too can solar dye. :)
