I received these very special honorable mentions eons ago and just forgot to post about them. Sorry girlies! I'm a sloth.
Rockin' Girl Blogger came from Samantha and...
Nice Matters Award came from Christina!
Thanks so much you two! Again, my profuse apologies for my brain blitz! Too much going on around here...
Second, Kool-Aid Q&A!
I received a plethora of questions about my L'Aid Dye-Fest. Here come the answers...
Angharad asks, "Which one was the blue??"
Deneen comments, "Isn't it so darn addictive?"
More so than I ever thought it would be. Really, I placed a HUGE order with KnitPicks for some nudie yarn (read - ready for dye) yesterday. Yeah, like I need more yarn.
Andy inquires, "Does it make a difference between unsweetened and sweetened?"
I've no idea. I used the unsweetened because that's what KnitPicks says to use in their tutorial.
Jean questions, "What yarn did you use?"
Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool in Natural and Cascade 220 in Ecru.
Miranda asks, "What happens when you wash the yarn?"
Water runs clear. Kool-Aid is kolorfast. How scary is that???
Miranda further inquires, "Would I be able to felt the stuff I make? or would the hot wash fade it?"
Now, I'm certainly far from expert here, but since the process is one of hot to boiling water to transfer the color into/onto the yarn, I doubt very much if it would fade while felting. I'd try it!
Just an FYI here. I will be in NYC from Sunday to Tuesday for work. Yuck. Anyway, I plan to do a little shoppin' and maybe even a bit of gallery hoppin' should time allow for a bit of goofin' off.
Happy Thursday kids!!
