dyeing yarn with Kool Aid Pt. 1Lessons learned-- #1--do better job of coiling yarn, so as not to have unwanted tie-dye effect.
#2--Need more Kool-Aid, didn't read directions carefully (not a new problem) and so didn't buy enough at the store. Still, it did come out a nice reddish-purple.
I used the stovetop method in Melanie Falick's "Kids Knitting" and it was very simple, and didn't leave much of a mess at all. I kept calling my DH into the kitchen to look at the water as the yarn absorbed the dye and left clear water behind.
Will have to try again soon so I can add an entry called "Pt. 2"
