Safeway was having a sale! It was like 8 packs for 2 bucks and so I bought...umm 32 packs. The cashier did look at me kind of funny.
Unfortunately, while I was at Safeway, I picked up a pyrex casserole dish that I thought I could lay the yarn and thought, "gee, this dish is smaller than the one I have at home." So I did not buy it. Of course, when I got home, I could not find my larger pyrex anywhere. Figures.
So, for my first attempt at dyeing with KoolAid, I used Ziplock bags. They worked well except that the yarn stacks on top of each other, the SuperWash yarn just sucks up the color lickety splity so it's a bit light where the folds of the yarn were.
The results? Well. They were interesting. The yellow (despite have used 4 packs of lemonade) did not take much. The strawberry and tropical punch (using only 2 packs) were vivid and wonderful and I just fell in love with the orange. However, the yarn soaked the orange in sections like I had hand painted it when I only just poured the cup of KoolAid into the bag. Safeway did not have pink lemonade and I wasn't sure if the Crystal Lite would work so I need to hit another store. Safeway also did not have any blue and I was hoping to make a colorway with blue (but not purple) for my swap pal. So, this first practice skein is for me and I will be hitting every Safeway in a 10 mile radius between the office and home to get some of that blue KoolAid!!!
