yarn!

Look! I dyed some yarn with Kool-Aid.

Went for deliberate mixing of contrasting colors (reds and greens) to see if something more restrained (and less Kool-Aid) would result. Knitting it up, it's predominant color is a very browned pink/warm tan.


I wish that the Kool-Aid solution were a bit thicker so that I had more control when applying it to the yarn. Gelatin, would be one approach, maybe, or cornstarch. Seems like either of these would make the yarn hard to clean. Any suggestions?
