I had the oven at 285*
The yarn was in a glass dish (having been pre-soaked in vinegar), with the frozen dye on top:
After the frozen dye lumps melted, I took it out of the oven and flipped the yarn over (that way all sides can soak it up). Here it is, mid bake:
I read you can tell the yarn is done when the liquid in the pan is clear. See my hand through the glass pan (there is a little water in there):
So I moved the pan into the sink, and drained the left over water. The yarn was hot! Too hot to touch so I let it sit there for a bit:
Once the yarn was cool enough to touch, I put it in a pan with water and vinegar (not sure if you need to do this but supposedly vinegar will set dye). Soak in vinegar to set:
I was impressed that no blue dye seeped out into the water.
I squeezed this out and hung it up to dry (this time in the shower because it was pretty drippy wet still).
In a following post I will show the finish product, the dry yarn :)
