(I keep typing "KookAid".)
An article on knitty provided the how-to and examples of what each flavor might look like. My daughter chose the Ice Blue Raspberry Lemonade, but I decided it might be prudent to work up a sample. It's really simple.
First, I measured out one ounce of yarn.
|Not a bowl of spaghetti|
Washed the yarn.
|The casserole dish is sitting on a burner but not over a flame|
Mixed one package of unsweetened KoolAid into water in a pot.
Added the yarn and heated it all to almost a boil.
Let sit for 30 minutes, then rinsed and washed the yarn.
|Smells like KoolAid|
The color, while very pretty, is uneven in saturation, which my daughter likes but is something to keep in mind for future adventures in dyeing. Once the yarn is dry, I am going to knit up a swatch for this pattern: Prairie Blanket by Oat Couture.
