I also add few drops of vinegar to the mixture and cook it together for 10 minutes.
Color can also be enhanced by greasing and polishing finished Easter eggs.
A year ago I found an interesting modification to that method. It involves different leaves (the more complex shape - the better) and old stockings/tights cut into pieces. I was a bit sceptical at first. We all now the bitter taste of failed Pinterest projects, don't we? But this is soooo great!
I made those with my husband. I took us less than hour to complete it, including a trip to garden in a search of leaves.
My (Sn)uggly project has been suspended for the moment.
Last Tuesday I got a message from my former classmate, who asked if I would like to "adopt" some yarn that she wouldn't need anymore.
Best Easter Surprise Ever!
Hasiok is also happy about it!
I got it all organised in my huge wicker basket and started working on my dream project!
I adore all blankets made by Lucy from attic24 but the Neat Ripple pattern is my all-time favourite!
Here are my small samples of all blue-ish yarns. They are different brands, but all of them 100% acrylic and in comparable weight.
I'm planning on making it approx 1x2 meters, so I can put it across my bed,over the pillows. Oooh! Can't wait to get started!
Have a nice afternoon! And Happy Easter!
