Sometimes you loose
The photo doesn't show the colors quit right, but pretty close. It's the three left hanks I'm talking about.
My book says, that pine cones makes brown - just what I wanted next.
Took a walk, filled my basket, and I almost destroyed my kitchen, when I broke the cones to pieces (I used knifes, a hammer, different pairs of scissors, a saw and said lots of angry words).
Then I cooked a pine cone soup, and my 14-year old told me, that he wouldn't eat home, if it was the dinner, that smelled so mysterious.
I dyed the yarn and what a disappointment. The right hank isn't brown in my opinion. Maby I did something wrong, but I'll never give it another try with pine cones - it's to much trouble.
