And the Results are in...

I am so thrilled with the turn-out of my kool-aid dyed yarn I cannot tell you! Usually dying with kool-aid turns out bright summery, sometimes dayglo colours, but not this time...I managed to acheive beautiful deep roses, purples and greens that I hope (since I wrote most of what I did down) I can duplicate with my other skein. Look! This was the skein while still just barely damp...but I was so excited that I snapped a pic while the weather was still nice.
I figured I'd like it even better once I re-skeined it, and boy was I right!

The first pictures I took outside because I thought it would really show the true colours well, but I think it was actually a little too bright. So I took another shot on top of my keyboard which really showcases the colours a little better.

I can't wait to knit this stuff up! It may actually become a beautiful intricate lacey sweater and blanket for my little niece Mia coming in October. We'll have to see how it swatches up.
Thanks again pal, you have totally inspired me to get the creative juices flowing again.
