I have tried something new today. I have dyed my own yarn today, using the Kool-aid method.
I followed the guide on knitty.com. I got lots of Kool-aid packages from Laura and Rae last year and finally got the time to try it. And it was lots of fun and very, very easy! I had 14 packages of Black Cherry Kool-aid, 190 grams of undyed wool, water and a big pot.
I used the stovetop method. I emptied my packages of drink mix into my pot with some water. I stired to dissolve and then I added my yarn and enough water to cover it. And after that I heated the yarn-filled pot to nearly boiling. Turned it off and let it sit, covered, for at least an hour, stirring a few times. Now I have 190 grams of red/pinkish wool drying in my bathroom.
PS: Kool-aid is an American soft drink mix. Hard to find in Sweden.
