So, anyhow, has anyone tried space-dying (I think it's called), to get the same striped effect one finds w/ Noro, etc.? You know, the relatively large blocks of color instead of color repeats? (and if this was discussed earlier, sorry, searched but didn't find it). I think I can figure out how . . . sorta.
I was just reading about this on the knittyboard... I will see if I can find the tutorial for it.
Okay- here it is:http://www.eunnyjang.com/knit/2005/12/techniques_selfstriping_yarn.html
I just tried kool-aid dying for the first time tonight on an orphan skein of peach superwash merino I had lying around. I will take pics once the skein dries and post them soon. I think it's pretty! It was a lot of fun. Messy, but fun. I borrowed Nutella's idea about putting it on a rack- I think that was good, although I had to use a lot of kool-aid! Lots of reds, and a few patches of berry blue.
