I really really love the way this yarn turned out. Ive been experimenting with different dying methods as I find them on the internet. For this yarn I dyed the roving first with orange kool-aid and let it dry overnight. I plied it with an undyed white single. I felt like Id only dyed a small amount of roving, but I got A LOT of yarn out of it. I cant wait to knit something up! (Im thinking of a hat right now)

Mmmm, I bet it smells great, in addition to being cute. I love Kool-Aid dye.
