Kool-Aid rules!

I dyed some yarn yesterday, I love playing with Kool-Aid. You never know exactly what the end result will be.
I started out with two skeins of natural white Novita Bambino yarn (100% wool), which I dyed with Grape Kool-Aid. After the dyeing I realized there where a lot of white bits, so I dyed it again with a mixture of Grape and Cherry Kool-Aid. The end reault is not really anything like what I'd imagined, it's better! I'm going to knit a birthday surprise for Annaonthemoon over at Craftster. I can't say what in case she reads this! Her favorite color is purple, hence the color of the yarn.

Edited to add a picture of the yarn wound up in two center-pull balls, I can finally start knitting! Yay!

Nice color!! Someday, I totally want to dye yarn with Kool-Aid. Just gotta get the funds for some dye-able yarn ;) Oh, and I really like your fat bottom bag! I crocheted one of those last year, but just could not find the handles like that, so I wasn't as happy with it-- but yours looks great!

Those look great! If I ever try dyeing, I'm going to start with koolaid dyeing - it always looks so nice and bright.
