DIY idea - Dip-dye knits
Old "a bit too colorful" secondhand knits (cotton or wool) could look pretty rad after some DIY dip-dye... If you decide you want to dip dye something remember to think beforehand what colours combine well (base colors effect the final result). For example yellow+green or blue+red=purple will work well and look good. Trying to get yellow and blue will be extremely hard as the yellow/blue underneath will make the dye result green. The best effect is having one lighter shade of a colour on the base knit evolving into a darker shade on the dye. You can test the result colormix with aquarell-watercolors for example on paper.
