Candy Corn


Autum Leaves


Wicked Witch


Halloween


Pumpkin Patch


My favorites are Wicked Witch and Candy Corn. I used koolaid and icing dye to dye them.  All of the skeins are Merino wool and 440 yards. I want to try some superwash but it costs $2 more per skein so for now I'm sticking with non superwash.

Thanks for looking!

Nope I don't use saran wrap but I want to try that.  With Halloween, I just dye half the skein at a time.

Thanks ! It works great ! I'll have to try this ! Do you hang the half skein not being dyed with a wooden spoon across the top of the pot or something ?

I had a bowl next to the pot to sit the yarn that wasn't being dyed in.

ooh those are pretty, great job,

Ive noticed and read that the superwash doesnt pick up the color as evenly, when I tried superwash there was still some spots that didnt take all the color, so I dyed them twice, when I used non superwash it picked up the color even all over.
