Kool-Aid Dyeing!

My sister and I spent this afternoon dyeing the Cascade 220 I bought last week with Kool-Aid! We used 2 packets of Lemon Lime and 2 packets of Ice Blue Raspberry Lemonade. We used the microwave. :) Here is a bunch of pictures that my sister took while we did it.
We washed the yarn first with a tiny bit of shampoo and let it soak for 30 minutes.

It also dyed the wooden spoons we used to dissolve the Kool Aid but that will come out in the dishwasher. It is now hanging on a tv tray drying. :) I like how some parts of it are darker than others. Some little parts are white!

Great color for the yarn! Here's where I dyed my yarn too. I used the lime green and grape. Isn't it fun?
