So tell me ,oh thou experienced mamas- what's the darn secret?! It seems like it should be pretty easy but I have some yarn hanging up in my tub that says it aint so LOL!<br><br>
Seriously though, I'm trying to learn the ropes and I think I need some help.<br><br>
*What's the best dye to use- I know acid dyes but are there particular brands better than others? I'm aware you can use Kool Aid too but haven't tried it yet.<br><br>
* What is your actual "painting" technique? How much dye do you put on the yarn and how do you keep it from pooling underneath?<br><br>
I'm sure this question has been asked one hundred times... but let's hear it for 101!!<br><br>
Anyone? I really want to figure this out in my lifetime <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
