I hadn't done any Kool-Aid dyeing since the last time our daughter was home on leave (She's in the Navy) and when she came home on leave again recently she wanted to dye yarn again. Usually when I dye yarn it ends up an all day process because I get so carried away with it. So many colors and choices and JoAnn's having plain wool yarn on sale did not help any. LOL Here are the results of our dyeing session.
This one was my favorite. I love how the colors turned out and I probably won't be able to recreate even if my life depended on it!
This one started out as a purple and cream color yarn that self stripes. I overdyed it using Wilton's Royal Blue icing color. The pictures really don't do it justice. The colors turned out so rich and vibrant. My 13 year old daughter took this skein of yarn and made a beanie out of it using the Knifty Knitter looms in her textiles class. It turned out great.
I can't remember what flavors of Kool-Aid I used on this one but it turned out cool.
I also love the way this one turned out. The inspiration for it was a skein of Deborah Norville Serenity Chunky Weight yarn that is at JoAnn's. I think the colorway is cotton candy and I just love the blend of pinks and yellows. I tried recreating it using lemonade and soarin' strawberry lemonade Kool-Aid.
