I saw at Anne-Merit's blog that she handdyed sock yarn with egg-colours. I was so fascinated by the idea to dye my yarn myself and Angelika was also interessed. So we both bought some yarn online (I choosed Handgefaerbt and Angelika ewas-sockenwolle). We decided to dye the day after Amelie's baptism. I mixed five different colours and dyed small parts of the yarn. And I tried to avoid that the same colours are side by side. From the light colour I needed more liquid colour to dye and the dark colours were lasting longer.
The yarn is still wet from the colours
The yarn needed to be fixed in the oven for one hour (you can do it in the microwave of a few minutes as well, but we don't use one). Then you can wash the yarn and dry it again. I was very impatient and wanted to knit as soon as possible.
