The dye job, that is. It turned out very, very badly. The biggest problem was the instructions I found did not mention how much Kool-Aid was required to get a 'saturated' color. I also had to use cream colored yarn since I couldn't find any white wool in town. I have since found better instructions and I will try the dye job one more time. I'm not going for anything fancy. I just want one solid color to see how it turns out.
I'll keep you posted on what happens, though I won't really have time to try the second test until this weekend.
Wish me (better) luck!
