dotty, now your yarn reminds me of strawberry daiquiri jelly bellies. i'm sure if i keep looking at it, it will remind me of something else.

Well, here's my first batch, however I have a new one "cooking" in the oven now. This first batch was done with Kool-aid (2 different colors), the second is being done with purple food coloring.

You really think so? The Berry Blue Kool-aid turned out an aqua color when mixed with the Lemonade Kool-aid.

I think it'll knit up gorgeous!

I've got some new dye jobs myself, some in my etsy store, some in my blog. Both linked in my sig.

Took some dyed roving and combined it with white corriedale. i call it my snow storm yarn since we got 12" of snow while I was creating this.

The carded fiber:

On the wheel:

On the niddy noddy after being plied (one wrap of the niddy noddy is 75")


Off the ball winder ... 404 yards!
