For some reason I can't explain, I'm intrigued by the idea of edible yarn - colors I can combine to remind me of some sort of food. Maybe it's because I'm using food safe colors: koolaid and Wilton's icing dyes. At any rate, it's fun, and gives the fiber enthusiast some instant gratification. I can burn through quite a bit of yarn this way. Check out this eye candy of a tutorial at Kathryn Ivy for using Easter Egg Dyes. I'll be stocking up next month to give that a try.
This is my Valentine's yarn. I created it for a tea party swap, thinking of the colorful party cupcakes in the grocery store bakery section. I used both koolaid and Wilton's. If you dyed any Valentine yarn this month, please share! I'd love to have a look - I'm just such a sucker for a project theme.
