I soaked the yarn in some hot water with a little Dawn in it for about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, we turned on the tea kettle and boiled water to mix the dyes. We added one teaspoon of each dye in cups that I don't use. We filled to about 3/4 c with the hot water and stirred. We used this very concentrated mixture to paint the yarn with disposible foam brushes.
On this skein of yarn we started with the darkest first, Blue Berry.
We then added Spring Iris in random areas on the front and back of the yarn. Remember the yarn is wet and the color blends.
We put the Hot Pink on last.
