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 !
