Kool-Aid is awesome

I had my first adventure in yarn the yarn dyeing process. I did some experimenting with some Patons wool yarn and Kool-aid. From what I have read online, this is the cheapest and least easy method to screw up. I went from a skein of this...
Into the Kool-Aid bath. I used strawberry, grape, and tropical punch. This smelled so sickeningly sweet.

After about twenty minutes in the microwave, I let it dry for about 24 hours.
Here is the end result. I am working on a crochet skull cap with this stuff. If I have enough, I'll make a pair of mitts too.
