great job!  Gratz on your win! 
question though, why did you mix your food coloring with vodka instead of water?  Does it give a special effect or does it dry more quickly?  Whats the reason?  i've just always used water if I want to paint my cakes..... let me know!  if it works better I'll be using that instead!

Do  you spin on a wheel?   next go at thin yarn, try a lower ratio (like not the biggest whorl, but the smaller ones)  and (if its a singledrive) Adjust the break band so you get a slower intake.  (if it's a double drive, I have no idea.. i don't have one of those.) 
If you are using a spindle, try a lighter spindle and get more twist into it... I think that would help.
this is my newb advice though... still by no means an expert here LOL  I spin by trial and error....

Speaking of thin yarns though,  Oddacity, you gave me the push I needed to try a smaller whorl on my Traveler.  It works!  LOL!!! i started spining the pink/yellow/orange and I think I'll have nice yarn for a pair of baby booties....  only problem is I still don't know if I'm having a girl LOL!!!

what horror stories about RIT?  I've used it on roving when it was all I could get, seemed to work fine......
And to the kool-aid question, I think it would make your wool sticky.  but maybe if you rinse it out enough, it may be fine.....  Can't be anymore helpfull there, but you could try it out on like 1/2 an ounce of roving,  and se what happens. Smiley  don't know a thing about the gatorade mixes... I honestly don't think I've ever noticed them before....
