a little dip of Project Spectrum

It's a rainy day. . .
What else is there to do?

Get four packets of Blasting Berry Cherry Kool-aid (on sale)and some cream-colored yarn. . .

Bring to a low simmer and let simmer until the water runs clear. . .


It even smells red in the kitchen.

Looks so great! Can't wait to see the finished product! Happy to see that you got some rain finally! Plus, before I go to OKC (Moore actually) in 2 weeks I need to know some LYS!

Is it sticky? How much rinsing does it take before you can use it?
Missed you last weekend at ESM Hope your new job is fun.

Hi Procrastiknitter,

Thanks for the heads-up about your blog. We definitely have suggestions.

Lydia--new job is fun. I only had to soak it in clear room temp water to rinse. It's not sticky at all (unsweetened Kool-Aid is what the recipe calls for).
