I got some plain yarn, it is beige Lion Brand 100% wool, kind of boring. 24 oz of it.
Make sure you yarn is just barely damp, not setting in water or this will “run” the colors (which also looks nice, but I wanted subtle). I don’t know if you can see the little drops of color, you may be able to see it better on my flickr page, if you need to Sprinkles of blue Kool Aid
Place the yarn in a bowl and heat in the microwave for 2 min.
When it comes out, sprinkle with your salt shaker as much as you like, wait until the powder “blooms”, and then toss carefully (i used two forks (the yarn will be hot), like it was spaghetti) and sprinkle again, do this until you have as much color as you like.
Sit in the sun again, until steamy, this part sets the color in. I waited about 4 hours in full sun and it was 90 degrees. When you look in no Kool Aid powder should be visible, it will have “steamed” in your container.
All ready to make a gauge swatch now!
A green peace pullover, imagine that, I think it will be good to hike and camp in during colder months.
