In The Pink! Obsessed with Wool Roses! Happy Pink Saturday
I guess you could say I'm obsessed with these little wool flowers. Last night I spent some time experimenting with Rite dye to see what would happen if I boiled some pieces of a yellow sweater in a red dye solution! Like magic the color changed to a pinkish hue. The little burgundy rose and leaf were part of a blue floral sweater. When I dyed them in the red solution the existing blue dye in the sweater mixed with the red and created this beautiful burgundy color! What a nice surprise. This wonderful rainy day in Texas, I am working on my little pins to wear on knitted scarves and shawls. Stop by and see what the Pink Saturday gang is doing today by clicking HERE !
