I am really excited to see how my adventures in dying go! This month, @knitcrate teamed up with @chemknits to send subscribers a due-it-yourself experience. I just dyed one hank with the kool-aid provided, and dyed the second hank with some food coloring I had at home. The video tutorials by @chemknits made it super easy. Stay tuned to see what my yarn looks like once it dries. —— Knitcrate is a premium yarn subscription service.
