I read This Blog
about Dying yarn with Koolaide
Written By Niccupp Crochet
I thought it would be fun to Try.
So here is what I did.
The first thing I did was buy some wool, and soak it in cold water.
And then I bought some Koolaide and vinegar.
This is a very inexpensive project.
The yarn was about $8.00
I bought it from Hobby Lobby
(using my 40% off coupon)
The Koolaide was 19cents each
and the Vinegar was about $1.50
Following the directions from the blog I spoke of ,
I made some purple, red, orange and green batches
and began the dying process.
(My kitchen smells all fruity)
After rinsing well, I hung it outside,
in the aspen tree in my back yard to dry.
I was disappointed in the colors at first,
But once they dried....I loved them.
I am calling them...
Shades of Sherbert!
I'll let you know what I decide to make with them.
