Yarn again

I have been getting little gifts of yarn.
Hand-me-down gifts.
Yes.
THAT kind.
;)
 
I like little gifts....
but they're not always the right COLOR.

I had something in the kitchen that solved THAT one!

I'm calling this yarn color
OATMEAL.
 
I've been wanting to weave a summer shawl.
Yeah!
Necessity...the mother of invention...strikes again!!!!
 
Well....not QUITE necessity.
More like InSANITY.
Hah!
Insanity...necessity....
 
You know what I MEAN!
 
Dyeing this yarn was so simple.
I spread it out in my 9x13.
Added boiling water and tea bags.
Let it set maybe an hour???
Hung it outside to dry
and rolled it up!!!
 
I'm sure there's a secret to keeping it from tangling up.
I don't know it.
THAT was the only trouble I had.
