Dyers! I need your help!
I'm all set to get into dying - but I have no idea what I'm doing. I know about the mordant, and I have some dyes from KP, but I'm pretty clueless other than that. HELP!! I know you all can help - I've been looking at the beautiful yarns you've been posting!

What I'd really like to be able to do is some nice ocean-like muted bluesy greens in a range of colors and a few different skeins (I have kp bare). Should I use kool-aid? Or real dye (I think I have teal, green and blue, maybe purple). I don'[t expect perfection - but does anyone have any tips???

Thanks!!
