Absolutely beautiful. I would never guess that was kool aid dyed. Everytime I have used kool aid I have gooten soch bright vivid colors. Not those beautiful muted colors. Great job! I would buy those if they were in my LYS.

Beautiful! I have some natural yarn coming in the next week or two from a co-op I am in and I want to dye it. I am so afraid of messing it up that I might stick to a solid color the first time. Your colors are great!!! How did you learn to do that? Did you use a book or take a class or just wing it?

Those are very pretty.
The tags are a great addition.

Finally, a good use for Kool Aid.

Absolutely love the colors!! , just from seeing yours, it makes me want to start dying my own, but my friend's hand dyed yarn always comes out really bright, how did you get yours so soft colored?

Thanks everyone!
Wildforyarn - I found the directions in the winter issue of creative knitting magazine. It is really simple! You use vinegar along with the koolaid and cooking it in the microwave sets the color so it won't wash out! :D

The yarn is the natural fingering weight from knitpicks.

fancypolar - I got some of the soft colors just by experimenting with mixing flavors....no exact recipe, just a drop or two of this, a dab of that and a splash of another....

Danielle, the yarn is GORGEOUS!! I'd be drooling over it if it was at my LYS! I love the tags too- very professional.
