Kool-aid dyeing!

I’m not sure how it came about, but this evening I ended up dyeing my recent handspun and some BFL roving with the last of my Kool-aid stash. Just in time, too, it seems, as some of it was hardened!

The red (about a pound of fiber) is four packets of Tropical Punch and two Cherry. It looks very pretty so far, not as bright as in this photo, but it’s kind of hard to tell with the night lighting. I’m picturing it striped with a dark blue…. Color Affection, maybe?

The lime (8ounces of BFL) is two packets of lemon-lime. It’s not too bright, and the kids really want scarves from the eventual yarn.

It was fun, but now my apartment smells a little funny from the dubious contents of the packets. :0
