Curry Yarn



Yesterday, I finally experimented with dyeing yarn using turmeric. I'd read a little bit about it on various sites, but I settled on the tutorial on Lion Brand. It was a lot of fun and much nicer to work with than dyes because it's all natural. I have doubts about it's long term color fastness, but I'm very happy with the results. Plus, it made the apartment smell like yummy Indian food!

Gorgeous color! Nice work. For some reason it reminds me of spaghetti squash, but in a better color.
