Did you know that you can dye yarn with Kool-Aid? IT’S TRUE. Like, if it worked on your hair as a badass tween, then it should work on all kinds of other natural fibres, right? Right. Logic! AnywayÂ I found two really useful-looking tutorials at knittyÂ andÂ snowangels.com, with Kool-Aid palettes that are really to dye for (get it? dye?). I say these are useful-looking because I haven’t actually tried this Kool-Aid dyeing process myself yet. But I am dyeing to.
I’ve never even hadÂ Kool-Aid before!
Sadly, the only colours I could find (or flavours, rather) in the one supermarket I checked out were grape, cherry, and orange. Boring. Like, where were lemon lime explosion and electric blue raspberry?
Anyway! Before I found out about this awesome dyeing process, I bought some yarn from KnitPicksÂ to make this Super Easy Baby Blanket, in theseÂ colours here:
Wouldn’t those look even better in shades of Kool-Aid??? You might have already guessed my inspiration. In case you weren’t sure, I was inspired by one particularÂ Google image search result for “eric carle”:
Now I eagerly await a package from Canada Post.
