First attempt at kool-aide dyeing

I used 5 packets of black cherry kool-aide with 100 grams of Knit Picks bare essential tweed sock yarn I love the color but I was hoping for a little more variation in the color so I didn’t stir it at all once I put the yarn in the pot.

Well where’s the pictures!!!

Edit: Oops there it is :oops:

That looks luscious…I want cherry socks now.

I am a little sad though because it was my brother in laws girlfriend that bought me all the knitting goodies for Christmas and then she passed away unexpectedly just before Thanksgiving after I posted this here I was actually getting ready to send the pic to her in an e-mail I guess I just didn’t let it hit me untill the holidays were over but now I am sad she was only 35 years old.

I’m so sorry for your loss. :crying:

The yarn looks fabulous! :cheering:

So sorry for your loss - holidays are so hard when you’ve lost a love one. :hug: :heart: :hug:

I’m so sorry for your loss. :heart: The yarn is beautiful.

Thanks everyone .

Is that her in your avatar? You could name your yarn after her or name the socks after her as a tribute. :shrug:

No that is me and my husband in my avatar but I think I am going to dye the other hank purple and name it after her because purple was her favorite color.

I’m so sorry for your loss! :pout: That is a beautiful color yarn. :slight_smile:

I’m sorry for your loss. :heart:

The yarn is very pretty though!
