My first try at dying yarn!

I tried Kool-aid dying tonight on some lion brand fisherman's wool. It was my first time dying yarn, and I was a bit intimidated by the steps and processes of dying with natural ingredients. So, while shopping on, I found the directions for dying with Kool-aid. It was easy, fun, and satisfying! What do you think??? :o)

The pictures show the small hank--approximately 40 yds--before dying, in the mason jar in the microwave during dying, and the beautiful results after dying! Can't wait to knit up the coffee sleeve with this!
