Thanks a lot litlnemo! That's really helpful; I was looking at some color theory, and thinking that red may be the way to go. 
Your dye job is beautiful! Gives me hope...(But I'll still test first.)

Thanks! Yes, looking at your yarn color, red might work... I don't think a blue or green would work well. But it's always fun to experiment and see what you get. Smiley

Hi, I'm new here... and this site has already answered tons of questions I was gonna ask!!!  Grin 

I've been wondering about trying koolaid dyeing for a while, but not sure what kind of yarn it takes as I'm allergic to pure wool,  Roll Eyes unless its a softer version like merino, cashmere etc. Also, being over here in Blighty (UK) how can I get hold of some Koolaid?? It comes in sachets doesn't it??  Huh

I have been lurking on this thread all week and looking at all your wonderful creations. I gave it a try 2 nights ago and I had a fun time.
Here are my results. I am not crazy about the colors, but hey it's my first try. Undecided

Oiyi, I like those colours, what are you going to make with it?

I've got some Kool aid on its way, found a UK seller on ebay  Grin

All I need now is the yarn, what a shame, more trips to the wool shop!!   Cheesy

I am glad that you found Kool Aid. Be sure to post your results.

I might make something for my puppy, Napoleon. Or maybe a baby hat? I just want to dye more yarn! Grin

Oiyi, what flavors did you use to get those colors??  I love that combination!  It's different, and it kind of reminds me of the ocean and the beach.

Has anyone tried dying with the Easter egg kits that are the little pots?  I wonder if they would be a quick 'n' easy way to do multicolored?

Thanks! I used grape, lemonade, and ice blue raspberry lemonade. I mixed the lemonade and ice blue raspberry lemonade to get the green. Then I put some grape into the ice blue rl to get a deeper blue. And I also added the deeper blue back into the grape.
