I was making blueberries into baby food last weekend, when I realised just how much stuff I was straining out. It was such a pretty color I couldn't bring myself to throw it away. I'd been knitting soakers for my son to wear over his diapers, and had dyed some covers with koolaid. How much of a leap is it to use blueberry leftovers?
A ball of Lion Brand was hanging out behind my couch. I got it on sale anyway... so if it totally flops I won't be too upset. Except this is taking some time to do, so I guess I'm out the time.
At first I just took all the leavings and put them in a pot with the yarn (which was a pain to rewind into a loose hank let me tell you...) and cooked it a bit. I got a nice gray color out of that but neglected to take a picture. Then I left it to sit for a week.
Blueberries will be out of season though... so two pints later:
I've changed my method a bit, boiling and straining. It's soaking now, and I'll rinse it tomorrow and see what we get.
