yup. that's right. i dyed the rest of that ball of yarn night before last. was going to just do what was left as one ball, but as i wrapped it into hanks, i discovered many places in this yarn where it had been knotted back together. grrr! so i removed the knots and ended up with 5 hanks instead of one. it actually made it more fun because i was able to try a few different color combos instead of just one. i even let bubba try his hand at painting one of the small hanks of yarn--he really enjoyed it too!
ball #1: "citrus"
colors = orange, slammin' strawberry-kiwi, and lemonade
ball #2: "surf 'n' sand"
colors = berry blue, orange
ball #3: "Maui sunset"
colors = orange, cherry, slammin' strawberry-kiwi, lemonade
ball #4: "smooshed berries"
colors = berry blue, cherry (smooshed together to make purple!)
ball #5: bubba's yarn (he chose the colors and painted this himself...with a little help from mommy)
colors = berry blue, lemonade, cherry
i think half the fun was coming up with names for each color combo. it really got my creative juices flowing though! and i have plenty more kool-aid. just need more undyed yarn to paint! :-)
