and it’s GREAT! Oh, do try it. It’s ridiculously easy, even more ridiculously satisfying, and it smells pleasantly of Kool-aid. Remember this?
I took a smidge of it, stuck it in a cup with some water and a pack of Kool-aid (Berry Blue, if you must know) and nuked it for two minutes. Waited, nuked it again. Rinsed, hung, wrapped up – tada!
It’s now a heathery purpley burgundy, with flecks of red where I tied the skein too tightly. Lovely. Goooooorgeous. (Can you tell I’m impressed with myself?) It was only about 20 yards, though, so for a while I kicked around, at a loss as to what to do with it. I tried a headband, and it was awful, so I knit a little bag. It’s really cute, and I designed it myself! I made eyelets, and learned how to do I-cord, and all sorts of stuff. It was really fun to knit again. I’ve been focusing on my crocheting pretty hard lately (new content coming soon, folks!) but I really want to improve my knitting design skills. Start small, right? And it is:
But very satisfying.
