Merino Wool (100%) sweater bought at a garage sale on Saturday 8/5/06 for 25 cents.
Sweater Saturday afternoon in the middle of unraveling.
Saturday night dying, also continued this morning (Sunday). I used the Knitty Tutorial on Kool-Aid dyeing.
Hanging to dry on the back porch this morning.
After all way said and done I had eight 8 oz skeins of yarn, dyed in various colors. Also a stray shoulder pad.
All in all I'm THRILLED with how it all turned out even though it was a 12 hour ordeal (actual time worked on unraveling and dyeing). I can't believe that I have 4 pounds of yarn out of one sweater. I will say that it was 25 cents for the sweater and then I spend $2.00 on the Kool-Aid. Not too shabby. I'm looking for a good pattern that I want to use for the girls' sweaters. I honestly recommend doing this at least once. We had a great time and are happy with the results (4 pounds of merino wool for $2.25 LOL).
