Coffee anyone?

Yes, dying is addictive! This time I tried coffee on some Patonyle white sock yarn. I separated it into socks (half each), and made nice long skeins around the armchair. I soaked them in a bit of vinegar, and then hung them from a skewer stuck into the side of a vita brits box, so that half could rest in the coffee/vinegar mix and half would stay white.

Some is a bit pale, too, because I lowered it a bit for the last 5 minutes.

I gave it a good rinsing, I swear, but it still smells a bit like coffee! Soooo nice. Makes me want to make socks right away. Unfortunately, I haven't got the time to be making 20 different projects at once. Sigh.

Tried to make a ball I could pull out from the center. Made me think how nice a Christmas tree would look if it was covered with these Ü

Ha ha. That would be such a you type of Christmas Tree.
And you say you don't have time to be making 20 different things but you sure do try. LOL!

I agree with Jack, that yarn looks yummy. I can't wait to see how it knits up!
