Kool-Aid dyeing adventures  
Last weekend I had a great time up in the mountains at C****'s house, where we spent an afternoon Kool-Aid dyeing in the microwave.

Here's the results of our little adventure:

This is the grey roving that I overdyed with the cherry - last night I blended it on the sacred drum carder ;) with more of the grey and pulled the roving. I can hardly wait to spin it. It's amazing how dyeing took a fleece I wasn't all that excited about and turned it into something really nice - I'll be overdying more of that stuff. There was a *very* slight difference between the straight cherry and the plum (Cherry + Berry Blue) I was going for - will have to add more Berry Blue next time.

The last stuff will be spun up and sent off *somewhere* as those are *so* not my colors.

I'm still pretty amazed at the colors we got from the Kool-Aid. At 10 packets for a dollar you can't have fun much more inexpensively
