It's always good to get them started with the yarn addiction young.  Roll Eyes

I LOVE the ball of yarn on the left of the 2nd pic.  So bright and summery.

That look so neat!  I've heard of kool aid dying but have never seen the finished product.

Is it color fast or will it run when you wash it?  Do you have any idea what the yarn is going to be used for?

How did the yarn turn out variegated if you only used one packet of Kool-aid?

What kind of yarn did you use, cotton or acrylic?
