Each of these pieces of wool yarn started out white. I dyed them with Kool-Aid! It was really simple – I found this great picture on Knitty that showed what type of Kool-Aid gave what color and away I went! It was really simple, I just dissolved 2-3 packets of Kool-Aid (with no sugar!) in a minimal amount of water and added the yarn that I had tied in mini-hanks. I zapped it in the microwave for about 2 minutes and let it cool back down to room temperature over about an hour or so. Then a quick rinse and let it dry overnight and here it is!
I’m in love with this, especially since I only needed a tiny amount of each color for another secret project. Damn these secret projects! As Christmas keeps getting closer, I keep making more things for people who know about the blog! I’ll have to find some other things to make soon. :)
