More Kool-Aid Fun!!
I was looking for some fun things to do with the kids (bored already, two weeks into summer vacation :rollseyes: ). Took some hints from Hildie and Knitty and we were off and running... Blue Raspberry Lemonade makes the most beautiful turquoise and Berry Blue was just a little darker and lovely too.

DD14 gets a Booga bag, DD9 gets socks and DS13 gets another pair of clogs! I'm going to make shawls with my two lace-weight skeins.

cool colors! A friend of mine does that with cloth diapers -- (she tie dyes the cloth before sewing the cloth) for her new daughter and they look so cool. I never thought to do it for knitting. I think I just might give it a try!

We don't have kool aid over here in NZ, but I'm sure I can find the equivalent.

Thanks for posting those photos! It's neat for me to see how that is done! The girls look like they had a blast, and the yarn turned out beautiful!

How is that yarn washed now that it is dyed?

They look like they are having so much fun. I just experimented a couple weeks ago with kool-aid dyeing and I loved it! (Details in my blog) Those squirt bottles are a great idea! Im going to head over to my dollar store and find some of those so I can finish up the yarn I have.

Great job! I tried some a little while ago with moderate results. Did you mix the colors or just use them as they came from the package?

I need to give it another try.
