i only used strawberry, grape, berry blue, and lemon lime. and then a mix of those together to make darker colors like the strawberry and grape to make the dark redish color.

Wow! That is really neat.

How do you go about dying yarn with koolaid? I would love to make some green yarn. The hobby lobby I get my yarn from has a serious lack of any green colors.
