Ok, this is the first time I recycled a sweater for wool. So there's the first of the two. Second I picked a hideous color because I really didn't want to ruin "good" colored wool to practice on. So now on to the second I dyed it with kool aid! It was soo much fun and my neighbor told me when she came in that my house smelled like fruit. I had to show her what I was doing and we both agreed that at least it didn't stink my house up lol. Comments and critisism (I know spelled sooo wrong!) welcome. Thanks for looking!

This is the original color I started with believe me it was that gross it was taken in sunlight.

Cookin it up!

Before wash and many rinses...

And finally dried it looks a bit brighter because by the time I got this pic the sun was down.  Sad

The decon was actually quite easy as it was a hand knitted sweater. I just love the bulkiness of the yarn so yummy. That actually was a small test batch so I am sooo looking forward to dyeing the rest. I want to make a felted bag out of the yarn.
