Wasn't that what the fat assed Kool-Aid guy shouted before he crashed through a wall? Or no, maybe that was the annoying honey-comb kids??? NO, that "big big taste". Oh yes, now I remember... that was Rita Moreno's line on the electric company. The Kool-Aid dude said, "OOOHH YEAH!" in a very creepy Barry White voice.
So what's all the fuss about Kool-Aid? Well I am glad that you asked. Today at the ever posh knit-one-one the ever adorable Elaine taught a class on dyeing yarn with Kool-Aid. Which is honestly something that I have never had a huge interest in doing, mostly because it sounds so messy, and I don't like messy. haha. Well it wasn't as messy as I had imagined it, partly because Elaine was extremely organized. This was her first time teaching a class, and she was simply amazing! Some of us mixed different flavors together and dyed our natural and unbleached yarns into a semi-solid color. I chose to "hand paint" mine using lime green, and a mixture of blue raspberry lemonade and strawberry to get a purple-ish color. I had a blast. As typical of the knit-one-one crowd, it was a lot of yarn, good food (thanks to Janice for bringing those delicious pork buns!), and hearty laughs all the way around! Now if only I could get the rest of the "dye" off of my fingernails! ewww
I wasn't expecting to post again so soon. (yes! two whole posts in less than a week!) So although my last post promised more photos... you will have to make do with these lonely Kool-Aid yarn pics.
